New Zealand match racing team, Waka Racing report in from the Argo Group Gold Cup, Bermuda, where they bounced one of the top contenders for the 2011 World Match Racing Championship out of the regatta.
It was a short and sweet day for us today. We were picked by the current tour leader and the in form Ian Williams for the quarter finals. We made short work of it by nailing every race and winning 3-0.
It was puffy and shifty today. The team did a fantastic job of sailing the boat fast in tough, blustery conditions along the way putting it on the right side of the shifts. We sailed superbly and were rewarded with a spot in the Semi Finals tomorrow.
We are looking forward to recharging the batteries tonight and moving forward again tomorrow!
