WMRT: Semi Finals Pairings on Defining Day at Portimão

by Cailah Leask

On a bright new morning to the Stage 4 of the ISAF World Match Racing Tour Torvar Mirsky (AUS) Mirsky Racing Team had the pick of the bunch as he headed to the Semi Final pairings selection.

Mirsky started the draw picking Ian Williams (GBR) Team GAC Pindar. Walking down the pontoon to prep his boat for the first match of the day he reasoned his choice of opponent for today. “Gillie is good in the SM40s, they suit him and he’s comfortable. Adam Minoprio came through 8th out of the Round Robin and looks like he is improving each day. Williams on the other hand started well and now might go the other way so could be the weakest. They are all tough contenders but I had to choose one”.

Peter Gilmour (AUS) YANMAR Racing goes up against current reigning ISAF Match Racing World Champion, Adam Minoprio (NZL) ETNZ/BlackMatch Racing, which will definitely provide Gilmour with some action.
