Time until match day
At least three teams will be flying the Stars and Stripes next week at the World Match Racing Tour Newport, off the US yachting capital’s historic Fort Adams and more could join them following the final qualifier event taking place over 26-28 May.
After wowing the spectators in Copenhagen last week, Sally Barkow and her all-female team on Team Magenta 32 are looking forward to a big reception on home waters for the World Match Racing Tour Newport.
Taylor Canfield (ISV), US One, has won World Match Racing Tour Copenhagen after beating Iker Martinez (ESP), Team Espana, in the most extraordinary circumstances. After taking straightforward wins in the first two matches of the final, in the third match Canfield found himself in a much tougher battle with the 2008 49er Olympic Champion who was improving by the race.
