Freshie Racing ready for Slovenia Match Cup

by Peter Nicholas

After a couple days break the Freshie Racing Team has arrived in Kopa, Slovenia to compete in the Slovenia match cup which is a grade 2 event. The team is feeling confident going into this regatta after our win in Ravenna, Italy last week.

Today the team managed to get out and train on the J24s againt fellow competitor Ian Ainslie who is the highest ranked skipper at this event.

Racing starts tomorrow with the plan to have a double round robin but with the top two of the first round robin qualifying directly for the semi finals.

Freshie Racing would like to thank Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club, Zhik, The Ron Tough Foundation and Peter Chappell for their support.
