WMRT Match Race Germany live coverage

Live coverage of stage 2 of the World Match Racing Tour, Match Race Germany, will begin on Wednesday with the first Qualifying Session after the teams finished honing their skills on the new fleet of Bavaria 40S yachts on Lake Constance.

Conditions for the Qualifying Sessions are forecast to be light and shifty which will present the teams with a considerable test on board the Bavaria 40S boats as Phil Robertson (NZL) WAKA Racing highlighted:

'You rarely get over 5 knots here usually, that’s what we got during our Practice Session. In the new Bavaria 40S that was quite a challenge. Those boats gain quite a lot of momentum because they’re pretty heavy which can be a good thing in light winds but you need to get up to speed quickly.'

The first Qualifying Session will be the first opportunity to see Mathieu Richard (FRA) French Match Racing Team and Johnie Berntsson (SWE) Berntsson Sailing Team in action, with the two going head-to-head in Flight 3.

Alongside the recognised faces of the Tour Card Holders stand William Tiller (NZL) Full Metal Jacket Racing, Eric Monin (SUI) Team Ocalys Corum, Eugeniy Neugodnikov (RUS) Team Synergy and Stefan Meister, a skipper that Bjorn Hansen (DEN) Mekonomen Sailing Team believes has the potential to cause a few upsets here: 'Stefan is a very good match racer. I know him well from the Berlin Match Race and believe he’s capable of not only winning some matches but also stands a real chance of making the Semi-Finals.'
