Adam Minoprio and the BlackMatch Racing team beat the world number one, Mathieu Richard of France, on their way to a 6-2 win-loss scoreline in the second day of competition in the Grade One match race event in Pornichet, France. They currently lie second, with three matches outstanding, in the round robin. Racing today was held in southwest winds of 10-15 knots, with sunshine: perfect conditions for sailing.
Torvar Mirsky (Australia), last year's winner, had the best scorecard at the end of the day, with 7 wins and a loss to Matthieu Richard. Peter Wibroe (Denmark) is tied with Minoprio in second place, but BlackMatch defeated the Danes when they raced each other.
The three remaining flights will be completed today to decide the quarter-final positions from the Round Robin.
