Team Gilmour has accepted a position as a Tour Card Holder on the 2014 Alpari World Match Racing Tour.

'The Tour' consisting of six events across the globe begins in Germany for Match Race Germany, followed by Stena Match Cup Sweden on the island of Mastrand with Sopot Match Race in Poland rounding out the European leg. The tour then heads across the pond for the Chicago Match Cup and then down to Bermuda for the Argo Group Gold Cup. The final round brings us closer to home for The Monsoon Cup in Malaysia.

The Team is super excited to be accepted as a challenger for the Alpari World Match Racing Tour of which the winner is also crowned the ISAF Match Racing World Champions.

Team Gilmour have competed in three World Tour events previously (either qualifying or competing as wildcards) including the 2012 Monsoon Cup, the 2013 Korea Match Cup, and the 2013 Monsoon Cup. 'We know that we can mix it with the worlds best match racers and are looking forward to the challenge' said skipper David Gilmour.

'Our team had quite a successful season last year, winning a number of events and moving up the ISAF rankings to 12th. This is a team sport and we feel that our team works well together and has what it takes to have a crack at the title' Gilmour continued.

The Alpari World Match Racing Tour today released the list of Tour Card holders for 2014 including; last years winning Taylor Canfield (ISV), four times World Champion Ian Williams (GBR), Keith Swinton (AUS), Bjorn Hansen (SWE), Phil Roberston (NZL), Mathieu Richard (FRA), and Americas Cup tactician Francesco Bruni (ITA) representing Luna Rossa.
