Sail-World.com : Lysekil Women’s Match - Ulrikkeholm dominates

Lysekil Women’s Match - Ulrikkeholm dominates

'Lysekil Women’s Match 2011'    Dan Ljungsvik LWM

With more wind coming to Lysekil on the Swedish west coast, Danish sailor Camilla Ulrikkeholm achieved good results at the Lysekil Women’s Match.

Ulrikkeholm dominated the quarter finals and put herself in a very good semi final position, 2 – 0 against Stephanie Roble from Chicago, USA.

'We are very happy for the breeze that has come to Lysekil. More wind gives us the opportunity to race more aggressively in the prestarts, and because of that we have won a lot today' said Ulrikkeholm.

Camilla Ulrikkeholm raced extraordinary well during Thursdays’ races in Lysekil and was undefeated going through the quarter finals. 'Our starts went very well. On the course I felt that the wind was steadier than before, making it less expensive to choose the wrong way.'

In the other semi final Australian Nicole Souter, world champion in Lysekil 2009, raced against the other Danish semi finalist Trine Abrahamsen. Their matches were closer and more interesting for all the spectators on the rocks surrounding the race area. The result was 1 – 1.

'It was really exciting today, with a little bit of wind' said Souter, who won Fridays’ last semi final match after passing Trine Abrahamsen on the downwind just before the finish line.

'I thought there was more pressure coming on our side of the course, but that never happened' Trine explained.

If Ulrikkeholm reaches the final, she would very much like to face her fellow club member of the Royal Danish Yacht Club. 'We’re not there yet, but that would be fun' she smiled. 'On the other hand we’re ready to fight anyone – now we just want to win!

The semi finals continue Saturday.

Results after two semi final matches in Lysekil Women’s Match 2011 (three victories qualifies for the final):
Camilla Ulrikkeholm, DEN – Stephanie Roble, USA, 2 – 0
Trine Abrahamsen, DEN – Nicole Souter, AUS, 1 – 1
