Title-holder Camilla Ulrikkeholm of the Royal Danish Yacht Club just continues to win and win in the Lysekil Women’s Match. Now she’s on 12 wins after as many sailed matches: 'We have excellent speed and very good manoeuvres, and just minor problems with details that don’t affect the outcome of the matches at all' says Ulrikkeholm, now dreaming of an event totally without losses.

'Of course that would be great, but everything can fall apart and we have to be careful about that, too.'

The Wednesday in Lysekil, the sailing metropolis on the Swedish West Coast, offered great sailing conditions, with the sun beaming over the event and a quite stable westerly breeze, enough for no less than 30 matches to conclude the first round robin and get half ways into the second. Reigning World Champion and local hope Anna Kjellberg has had a somewhat untoward opening of the Lysekil Women’s Match, the third stage out of five of the Women’s International Match Racing Series (WIM Series).

She did, however, conclude her Wednesday with three straight victories, taking her to a third place on the scoreboard as well as raising the crew mood considerably: 'I’m so proud that we didn’t give up when the races didn’t go our way. Instead we used every pause in the tight schedule to discuss our mistakes and find solutions and improvements, so now our spirits are a lot better,' Kjellberg comments, directing her next quote in a Danish direction.

'Camilla better beware now!'

Kjellberg and Co shares third place so far, on a 7 – 4 score, with Stephanie Roble from the USA: 'We’re a little disappointed to have lost four of our matches today, but we just made a few silly mistakes and we’ll fix them for tomorrow,' the American says.

Anne-Claire Le Berre from Brest had a very good day, won six matches and climbed to second overall with her 8 – 3 score: 'Today we made our best and sailed fantastically. It’s very challenging to come here and race in the larger boats used in the Scandinavian countries, but now when we’ve found the speed we want to hang on to the final,' the French concludes.

Standings in the Lysekil Women’s Match, the third stage of the 2014 WIM Series, after the second day of a double round-robin (skipper name/nationality/wins – losses):

1. Camilla Ulrikkeholm, DEN, 12 – 0
