Baltic Match Tour - Sweden: Solid Start for Black Swan Racing

by Keith Swinton

We completed five races of the round robin stage. We finished with a score of 4 wins 1 loss.

"It was a tricky day today with light and shifty conditions. We were a little rusty with some of our maneuvers and starts but we really improved during the day. Our only loss, against Peter Wibroe was a little unfortunate because we did a real nice job wiping off a penalty but the umpires missed the contact between the boats after our luff which cost us. Our best win was against world number 8 Neugodnikov,of Russia werewe sailed away completed a penalty and won the race." Keith Swinton Black Swan Racing.
