Sail-World.com : Chicago Match Race Center Autumn Open B Event win to Macgregor

Chicago Match Race Center Autumn Open B Event win to Macgregor

'Funk v Macgregor in the Finals - CMRC Autumn Open B'    Chicago Match Race Center

British Olympian Lucy Macgregor led her team to victory in the Autumn Open B Event during their first stay in Chicago. Yesterday, Macgregor's team placed fourth on the leader board and continued to move up in the rankings until she won the event sweeping the finals. With the idyllic weather, the race committee was able to complete their plan of a Quarter Final Round Robin, Consolation Round Robin, Semi's and Finals.

Macgregor took three losses in the second round robin, but was still able to sneak in to the Semi's with seven points. Joining them in the Semi's by winning the round robin was top seed, fellow 2012 Olympic hopeful Brad Funk, local favorite Don Wilson, and Seah Chin Yew with Team Zoke Kiwi Match. Wilson had a promising day yesterday going undefeated except to Funk. However, he was knocked out of the Semi's by Macgregor's team who continued on to face Funk in the Finals.

The Finals moved quickly with the breeze picking up to 15 knots. After losing to Funk twice prior in the event and suffering in yesterday's chop, the odds were against the ladies' team and their coach. However, Macgregor was able to work the flat water and while the races remained close took the event in two wins against Funk.
