    CANFIELD COMPLETES LINE-UP FOR WORLD MATCH RACING TOUR FINAL

    London (24 April, 2019) Former Match Racing World Champion and co-founder of the ‘Stars & Stripes Team USA’ America’s Cup team, Taylor Canfield, has been confirmed as the twelfth and final skipper for the World Match Racing Tour championship final in Marstrand, Sweden from 3-7 July. Canfield joins a world class line-up of eleven other professional match racing skippers including defending world Champion Torvar Mirsky (AUS), Mirsky Racing Team, and six-time world champion Ian Williams (GBR), Team GAC Pindar.

    29yr old Canfield, from St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, has become a formidable name on the professional match racing circuit. A former Match Racing World Champion in 2013, he is a four-time winner of the crimson blazer at Long Beach Yacht Club’s Congressional Cup, two-time winner of the Argo Group Gold Cup in Bermuda, and has won numerous other events on the World Match Racing Tour since his Tour debut in 2011.

    In December last year, Canfield was announced as helmsman for the ‘Stars & Stripes USA’ America’s Cup team under the flag of the Long Beach Yacht Club, CA. The team was confirmed as the 5th challenger for the 36th America’s Cup in Auckland, New Zealand.

    Currently ranked #15 on the WMRT leaderboard, Canfield has been awarded an invitation to the WMRT championship final due to higher ranked skippers being unable to attend the event because of other commitments. The winner-take-all championship final will give Canfield and his team the opportunity to clinch a second world title. However, with three other former world champions to contend with, it will not be an easy road to the top step of the podium.

    The five-day WMRT Championship Final takes place 3-7 July in Marstrand, Sweden hosted by GKSS Match Cup Sweden. The teams will race on identical M32 carbon fibre multihulls providing close-action racing in front of the tens of thousands of spectators that flock to the picturesque island of Marstrand each year for the event.

    Confirmed skippers for the WMRT Championship Final are as follows;

    1. Nicklas Dackhammer (SWE) Essiq Racing Team
    2. Ian Williams (GBR) GAC Pindar
    3. Yann Guichard (FRA) Spindrift Racing
    4. Harry Price (AUS) Down Under Racing
    5. Torvar Mirsky (AUS) Mirsky Racing Team
    6. Mans Holmberg (SWE) Holmberg Match Racing Team
    7. Johnie Berntsson (SWE) Berntsson Sailing Team
    8. Markus Edegran (USA) Team Torrent
    9. Phil Robertson (NZL) China One Ningbo
    10. Pieter-Jan Postma (NED) Sailing Team NL
    11. Daniel Björnholt (DEN) Youth Vikings Denmark
    12. Taylor Canfield (USA)

    Full details of each team including skipper bios and crew lists will be announced in the run up to the July event and made available on the WMRT website.

    SKIPPER LINE-UP ANNOUNCED FOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL

    London, UK (17 April, 2019) The World Match Racing Tour has announced the skipper line-up for the 2018-2019 WMRT Championship Final from 3-7 July in Marstrand, Sweden hosted by the GKSS Match Cup Sweden. The list of world class sailors features three former match racing world champions including defending champion Torvar Mirsky (AUS), six-time world champion Ian Williams (GBR) and 2016 world champion Phil Robertson (NZL).

    The 2018-2019 WMRT Championship Final will conclude the extended 2018 WMRT season as announced last month. The winner of the event will be crowned 2018-2019 Match Racing World Champion as sanctioned by World Sailing, and will have their name engraved on to the WMRT Championship Trophy made by Royal Jewellers Garrard & Co.

    Eleven of the top twelve teams from the WMRT leaderboard have accepted invitations to the Championship Final including French multihull maestro Yann Guichard and his Spindrift Racing team. After finishing on the podium at the 2017 WMRT Finals in Shenzhen China, the team have their sights firmly set on a win in Marstrand.

    Also with his sights on the podium is Dutch Olympic Finn sailor Pieter-Jan ‘PJ’ Postma and his Sailing Team NL. Currently ranked #11 on the WMRT leaderboard, Postma finished 4th at the 2017 WMRT Finals in Marstrand, a venue which he and his team certainly found their stride as he explained;

    “I am hugely excited to be competing at the WMRT Finals in Marstrand. It is a very challenging venue but it suits our sailing style well as a team. We have had a lot of time sailing our own M32 since then, so we are feeling confident for a good finish this year!”

    Due to his 49er Olympic commitments, Danish sailor Jonas Warrer, currently ranked #9 on the WMRT leaderboard, is unfortunately unable to make the event and the invitation will be passed to a replacement skipper and team to be announced in the coming weeks.

    The five-day WMRT Championship Final will be raced in M32 carbon fibre multihulls on the legendary Marstrand racecourse, a short and technically challenging racing area requiring split decisions by teams at speeds over 25knots. The iconic rocks that flank either side of the course offer the ultimate stadium view of the racing for the tens of thousands of spectators that will flock to the island during the event to enjoy the weeks festivities and lively social scene.

    Confirmed skippers for the WMRT Championship Final are as follows;

    1. Nicklas Dackhammer (SWE) Essiq Racing Team
    2. Ian Williams (GBR) GAC Pindar
    3. Yann Guichard (FRA) Spindrift Racing
    4. Harry Price (AUS) Down Under Racing

  • WORLD MATCH RACING TOUR EXTENDS 2018 SEASON

    In Live Blog, News on

    WORLD MATCH RACING TOUR EXTENDS 2018 SEASON

    London, UK (March 20, 2019) The World Match Racing Tour, under new ownership since 1 January, has announced an extension to the 2018 season in order to complete the World Championship following its sale by Aston Harald in December. The revised 2018-2019 WMRT Final will take place in Marstrand, Sweden over 3-7 July, hosted by the GKSS Match Cup Sweden. The event will be sailed in M32 catamarans and the winner will be crowned 2018-2019 Match Racing World Champion, as sanctioned by World Sailing.

    The decision to extend the 2018 season follows feedback from teams and stakeholders keen to complete last year’s unfinished season.  WMRT Executive Director James Pleasance explains: “Teams invested in the Tour last year to win the World Championship. The Tour was sold before a Final took place and we have extended the schedule to ensure the World Championship title is properly awarded.  The GKSS Match Cup Sweden has always been a flagship event of the Tour and we are excited to partner with them to host the World Championship.”

    The top 12 teams from the current WMRT leaderboard will be invited to compete in Sweden. They include defending Match Racing World Champion Torvar Mirsky (AUS), and former World Champions Phil Robertson (NZL) and Ian Williams (GBR).

    Looking for his first world championship win is the current leader of the WMRT rankings, Nicklas Dackhammer. The young Swede commented: “ESSIQ Racing Team is really looking forward to the WMRT Final in July. Although we are currently on top of the leaderboard, it’s a winner-take-all championship, so we will have to bring our best game. But we know the M32 well and we have a hometown advantage in Marstrand, which will hopefully give us an edge.”

    Winner of the 2018-2019 World Championship will receive the magnificent sterling silver WMRT trophy, commissioned in 2011 from Royal British jeweller Garrard & Co., who famously in 1848 crafted the world’s oldest sporting trophy – the America’s Cup.

    The WMRT Championship Final will take place over five days in Marstrand from 3-7 July. Official host GKSS Match Cup Sweden will also stage, in parallel, a Women’s Match Racing Trophy to be held over the duration of the event and featuring six teams.

    Planning ahead for the World Match Racing Tour

    As a result of extending the 2018-19 WMRT season, the Tour will announce a 2019-2020 season scheduled to start in the latter part of this year.

    Going forwards it is the intention of the WMRT’s new owners to return the Tour to its roots, with a remit for the series and an organisational structure for 2019-2020 and the future similar to how it was before Aston Harald’s tenure.

    James Pleasance explains: “The World Match Racing Tour was founded on a very simple premise: To grow top level match racing by bringing together a series of existing and new events under a common ‘World Series’ brand. Each event is run independently but benefits from the added value that being part of a World Tour brings through global exposure and partnerships – the sum being greater than that of the parts.

    Our plan is to return the Tour to have 8-10 world championship events per year and generate financial value to both sailors and sponsors through international media coverage and prize money. Qualifier events will give an open opportunity for any match racing sailor to become World Champion.”

    The World Match Racing Tour remains one of the few events granted ‘Special Event’ status by the world governing body of the sport, World Sailing. Originally a single annual event, since 2006, the Match Racing World Championship has been decided annually over the multiple events that comprise the World Match Racing Tour.

  • WMRT WELCOMES NEW OWNERS

    WMRT Welcomes New Owners

    London, UK (December 23, 2018) Swedish company Aston Harald AB has completed its sale of the World Match Racing Tour to a group of investors behind C Shine Financial Corporation. The sale was initially announced last month in an interview by Aston Harald CEO, Häkan Svensson. The new owners have taken over the management of the Tour effective immediately, including its registered offices in London and Bermuda.

    The purchase of the WMRT follows C Shine’s hosting of the Shenzhen Match Cup and Match Racing World Championship in Shenzhen, China in November 2017. When Aston Harald AB expressed interest in selling the Tour at the end of the 2017 Tour season, negotiations between the two companies started earlier this year.

    As one of only eight officially sanctioned World Sailing ‘Special Events’ – including the America’s Cup and The Ocean Race – WMRT is also the longest running global professional sailing series in the sport. Previous Tour Champions include six-time world champion Ian Williams (GBR), Peter Gilmour (AUS), Adam Minoprio (NZL), Phil Robertson (NZL), Taylor Canfield (ISV) and defending Champion Torvay Mirsky from Australia.

    The World Match Racing Tour has long been regarded by professional sailors as a pathway to the America’s Cup and as an opportunity for teams to hone their match racing skills at the highest level. Since 2000, the WMRT has been a match racing series for monohull match racing, however this was changed in 2015 following the introduction of the M32 multihulls to the Tour. Following the recent change in the America’s Cup to foiling monohulls for the 36th edition of the Cup in 2021 in Auckland, it is expected the WMRT will continue to include events in both monohulls and multihulls starting in 2019.

    The Tour’s new owners are in the process of appointing a new management team to structure the 2019 WMRT season and format, as well as the World Sailing Match Racing World Championship. Former WMRT Executive Director James Pleasance has been appointed to form the Tour’s management and operations team.  Pleasance has been involved with the Tour since 2002 and as Executive Director from 2012-2016.

    Further announcements will be made in January 2019.

  • Dackhammar Takes His First WMRT Title in Portugal Copy

    Dackhammar Takes His First WMRT Title in Portugal

    Lisbon, Portugal (7th October, 2018) – Nicklas Dackhammar and his all-Swedish Essiq Racing Team wrote their name in the history books today as they became the first name to be scratched on to the WMRT Regata de Portugal Trophy, a great moment for the team to take their first win at a Championship level event.

    Today began with the Semi Final Stage, Ian Williams up against Harry Price and Nicklas Dackhammar looking to reverse history and take down Yann Guichard.

    Despite Britain’s Ian Williams winning the pairing 2-0, Harry Price was optimistic after their Semi Final clash on his overall performance this week in Lisbon, finishing third after a win in the Petit Final over France’s Yann Guichard.

    “A fantastic result for us getting third place. It really topped off our season being quite consistent. We’ve had a fourth, sixth and now a third. We’re really happy to be on the podium for our first Championship level WMRT event.”

    This is only Price’s second competitive season on the World Match Racing Tour.

    Dackhammar’s all-Swedish setup with brother Pontus onboard, as well as Jakob Wilson and Fredrik Aurell is a change from his 2017 campaign and the shift to bring more experienced hands onboard has produced a mature team who can be consistent at the top level, epitomised by today’s results. In the Semi Final Stage he bested Yann Guichard of France in two straight matches to settle a score from Marstrand where the two also met in the Semi Final Stage.

    In what was scheduled as a first-to-three point final, Ian Williams and his GAC Pindar took match one in the forecasted Easterly breeze which has been consistent all week long in Lisbon. However, as has also been the story of the week, as the tide turned and the afternoon breeze died off, conditions became a lot more difficult to sail in.

    In match two Dackhammar had his chance and pounced on the Brit to win the second. From the start boat, PRO Mattias Dahlström said “the boats just made it to the finish line in the last race, but then after that it was simply too light to start another. The breeze kept fading and puffing in different spots so we stayed out for an extra hour hoping to setup a course but nothing stabilised.”

    With the score at one-a-piece in both the Final and Petit Final matches, the race committee had to turn to the rulebook to dictate a winner. Dackhammar and Price took their matches respectively because of their win in the last race, leaving Williams and Guichard waiting for China to stake their dominance again.

    With a consistently strong year, Dackhammar is definitely peaking at the right end of the season. “We are happy. We are really happy. It feels really good. We’ve had an epic season.” Said Dackhammar. “We had a team meeting in February and we said we wanted to race the final day in each event. We had the third in Marstrand, we missed out on the medal in Risör and now we got things together to get the win in Portugal.”

    “GAC Pindar are disappointed not to come out on top.” Said Ian Williams. “We felt like we had a strong regatta in the match racing and fleet stages. But well done to Nicklas Dackhammar and his team on their win and we will be looking forward now to the Final in China.”

    Now comfortably on top of the WMRT overall leaderboard, Dackhammar will be one to watch at next month’s Tour final in China and could be a dark horse of the competition, especially so after knocking out reigning World Champion Torvar Mirsky in yesterday’s Quarter Final Stage. Conditions in China last year were similar to those in Lisbon this week, providing the top teams this week with valuable light wind practice ahead of the Final.

    The inaugural Regata de Portugal on the WMRT calendar has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for teams both on and off the water. The event village has been a hive of excitement on Lisbon’s coastline and has generated great audience viewing.

    Commenting on the week in Portugal, Harry Price said, “I think everyone is really excited to see how this Regatta de Portugal will come about next year. It’s been a fantastic event this week.”

    The World Match Racing Tour now turns its attention to next month’s season finale in China where the Match Racing World Championship will be held, November 8-12th. With some new faces at the top end of the WMRT leaderboard heading to the Final, all bets are off as to who could claim the World Championship in 2018.
