Win for the Wings at Women's Match Race Denmark

by World Match Racing Tour 27 Sep 2022 19:41 PDT 23-25 September 2022

Sweden's Anna Östling and the Wings Sailing Team have won the inaugural Women's Match Race Denmark at Skovshoved Harbour in Copenhagen, hosted by the Royal Danish Yacht Club. The event is the second stage of the 2022 Women's World Match Racing Tour, attracting twelve international women's match racing teams to the three day event.

Östling and team secured the event win with a 2-0 win over French world no.1 ranked match racer Pauline Courtois and her Match in Pink Normandy Elite Team.

With less experience sailing the DS37 match racing boats, Courtois and her team were quick to find their stride in the heavier boats and remained unbeaten in the qualifying and semi-final rounds. However, it was Östling and her formidable and long standing Wings Sailing crew that brought their experience in the DS37's to the finals when it counted most.

"We love these boats and it is really our home boat after spending so many hours training on them" commented Anna Östling "Today, we finally we got it all right and we are so happy to be on the podium again"

In the petite final, Australia's Juliet Costanzo and the Easy Tiger Racing team (RPAYC Sydney) clinched third place after a close battle with Denmark's Lea Vogelius. Costanzo defeated Vogelius 2-1 in the semi-final match.
