Following a long day off the water waiting for the evening seabreeze to roll in, BlackMatch were only involved in one race and managed to take a win over the Russian Synergy Team, maintaining our unbeaten record here in Portugal.

We are currently at the top of the table and with the event now pushed for time, an added incentive for holding on to the top position is the fact that the top qualifier will proceed directly to the semi final, while only 6 other teams left to fight it out in a shortenened quarterfinal.

BlackMatch would like to thank their sponsors FedEx Express and Events Clothing/Line 7 New Zealand. We would also like to thank our new sponsor Steinlager Pure and Emirates Team New Zealand, as without their support we would not have this opportunity.
