Warrer out as Guichard proves too good

Yann Guichard sent Jonas Warrer home from the Alicante Match Cup with a 3-0 semi final defeat.

Guichard’s French Spindrift Racing crew were dominant against Warrer’s Danish-flagged Team Warrer, inflicting three straight wins in a row.

Warrer bounced back in the third race, leading Guichard off the start line and around the first mark but by the downwind gate Guichard was back in control.

The win not only books Guichard a place in the finals of the Alicante Match Cup but also a spot at the 2018 World Match Racing Tour opener.

Guichard will face either Pieter-Jan Postma or Markus Edegran in the final.
