Sail-World.com : Victory for Swede at Weymouth match racing

Victory for Swede at Weymouth match racing

Viktor Ogeman made the most of some frustrating conditions as the young Swede won the fourth and final RYA National Match Racing Series qualifier at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA) last weekend.

With limited racing completed over the two days as heavy winds and torrential rain swept through Portland Harbour and Weymouth Bay, 20-year-old Ogeman clinched six race wins out of seven to win the qualifier with an 85% success rate.

Britain’s Matt Greenfield was second with five out of six wins (83%) while defending and two-time RYA National Match Racing champion Nick Cherry finished third with three wins out of four (75%).

2007-08 Volvo RYA Keelboat Squad sailor Greenfield, 23, now progresses through to the RYA National Match Racing Series Grand Final at WPNSA on 10-12 October as Ogeman’s Swedish team are not eligible to contest the National title.

Cherry will also be invited to defend the title he has won for the past two years at the three-day Finals showdown, which gets underway on Friday.

Ogeman beat both Greenfield and Cherry during this weekend’s event but the two Brits did not go head-to-head themselves. Crawley-born Greenfield was seventh overall at last year’s Series Final.
