Freshie Racing Team wins Lyon Grand Prix Match Race

Final day video

Clean sweep on day one

by Travis Keay

After the First day at the Lyon Grand Prix Match Race FRT has had a very successful day winning all of our races in the round robin and also claiming a spot in the finals after winning our semi finals 2/0.

The team which includes part time member Tom Johnson sailed very well today with controlled pre-starts and good consitant legs. The breeze here in Lyon has been coming from a fairly consistant position all day so we have been able to get through most of the program with minimal time spent moving marks. The plan for tomorrow is that 7th to 5th will race in the morning and the top 4 will start racing around midday.

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