Aon Racing made a great start on the first day of the OM Match Race Cup, in Lake Ledro, Italy. This is a big change of scene for the team, with the picturesque lake sitting at 660m altitude in the Italian Alps. The team posted 7 wins from 7 races, including important wins against Mads Ebler and Nicolai Sehested. The round robin will be completed today, with four teams progressing to the semi finals stage of the competition.

Hopefully we can continue our good work today, but in any case the team is having a fantastic time. The only downside to the regatta so far is 'those bells', which ring 78 times at 7am.
