In the 11th edition of the TeamWork Geneva Match Race, Finnish sailor Staffan Lindberg claimed victory with his team Alandia Sailing Team Powered by GP, in front of the title holder and local hero Eric Monnin. The Grade 2 event saw eight top level Match Race teams sail at the Société Nautique de Genève in Switzerland. On-board «Surprise» one-designs, only the talent of the teams made the difference.

After a very tight finish, Lindberg won the 11th edition of the competition with a 2-1 score against title holder Eric Monnin : 'We are pleased with this week-end in Geneva,' said Lindberg. 'The wind was very light on Friday and Saturday, but we had amazing conditions today. I really enjoyed sailing on the one-designs monohulls «Surprise» and hope to be back next year!'

For his 11th participation in the event, the Swiss sailor Eric Monnin missed victory by a narrow margin : 'We are a little disappointed, but Staffan Lindberg sailed very well,' said Monnin. 'We had everything to play for until the last flight. We managed to come back, but it wasn’t enough!'
