    Delle Karth too good for Kling

    Nico Delle Karth overpowered Kim Kling to breeze into the quarter finals of the Alicante Match Cup with an easy 3-0 win.

    Kling’s Caprice Match Racing Team went down in straight races to Delle Karth’s Chilli Racing in the opening match of day two.

    Kling will have to sail against Quentin Delapierre’s Team Lorina-Golfe du Morbihan for survival in the second repechage.

    Late charge from Gilmour not enough to topple Edegran

    A late surge by Australian Sam Gilmour to come from 2-0 down against Markus Edegran to level the scores to 2-2 was thwarted when Edegran took the fifth race in a best-of-five match.

    At 2-0 down Gilmour said that his team were just trying to make slight improvements one at a time and it seemed to pay as they got into their groove, winning the following two races.

    But just when it looked like World Match Racing Tour card holder Gilmour would edge Edegran the American responded by winning the start of the fifth race and controlling the action right to the finish line.

    The result forces Gilmour to face off against Wosinski in the second repechage to stay in the competition.

    Clean Sweep For Barkow

    Sally Barkow’s Team Magenta 32 dispatched Lukasz Wosinski’s Delphia Sailing Team 3-0 to book their spot in the quarter finals of the Alicante Match Cup.

    American Barkow was dominant against her Polish rival, winning each start and sailing clear to ease to three victories under the Alicante sun.

    “We did really well out there today, the girls were great and really got into the groove,” she said. “Conditions are really tough out there having to use the gennaker around the entire course, and that means full-on manoeuvres. But we started well and gained round the course, so we’re happy with that.”

    Wosinski will now face Sam Gilmour in a winner-takes-all scrap for a place in the quarter finals.

    Warrer advances to Alicante Match Cup quarters

    Jonas Warrer’s Team Warrer are through to the quarter finals of the Alicante Match Cup after defeating Quentin Delapierre’s Team Lorina-Golfe du Morbihan 3-1 in today’s repechage.

    Warrer’s Danish crew won the opening clash before allowing their French counterparts to level the scores one apiece in tricky, light winds of around seven knots.

    Racing was tight but back-to-back race wins for Warrer gave them victory in the best-of-five match.

    “We’re happy about a 3-1 win,” said Warrer, who joins Guichard and Postma, the top two teams from the opening day, in the quarter finals.

    “The French guys are really good, and it was very tight most of the way round the course. We matched well but we came out on top. Definitely our focus was on the starts and nailing them. We like to lead into the start line and when we can do that we mostly win the starts.”

    Delapierre’s crew, winners of the 2016 Tour de France a la Voile, will now have to sail against Kim Kling’s Caprice Match Racing Team in the second round of repechage.

    The winner will remain in the competition, while the loser will be going home.

    “It was a bit disappointing for us,” Delapierre said. “We have to improve our level of manoeuvres and our speed, especially upwind. It’s not over yet though – there is still time.”
