Kiwimatch Sailing Team are ready to kick off phase 2 of the Alpari World Match Racing tour this week with the next two events falling back to back once again.

The action kicks off in the Swedish Archipelago of Marstrand from second - 7th July. The road show then heads to Navy Pier in downtown Chicago for the inaugural Chicago Match Cup from the 10th - 15th July; the windy cities first year hosting an Alpari World Match Racing Tour event.

This could be a critical and pivotal part of the season for Kiwimatch with the next two events defining how our first season on the tour plays out. With the high of finish second in Germany, our first ever event as tour card holders; to the low of missing out on the quarter finals in Korea, this is a great chance to find some consistency and build momentum into the second half of the season.

This will be the first time we’ve competed in the Swedish Match Cup as a team, so as always, it will be critical to get up to speed quickly. As we’ve learnt, there will be no free passes handed out by any of the teams on the tour this year.

Raced on the DS37 yachts, the Swedish Match Cup is one of the feature events on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. With warm weather and daylight seemingly never ending, the crowds flock to small island of Marstrand for one of the biggest sporting event in Sweden.

With cheering fans lining the natural rocky amphitheatre of the race course, we are keen to put on a great performance.

What ever happens in Sweden though, the entire team is looking forward to heading back to the familiar surroundings of Chicago. Having competed there several times over the last few years it’s great to see the Chicago Match Race Centre step up and host a World Tour event. More on that later though.

Once again the Alpari World Match Racing Tour will have live coverage streaming at www.wmrt.com, with team updates at www.kiwimatch-sailing.com. Thanks to Events Clothing for helping us to look good, and to all our friends and family
for their support.
