Edegran Comeback Proves Too Little Too Late

A third-race comeback from Markus Edegran’s E11EVEN Racing wasn’t enough to see off Pieter-Jan Postma’s Sailing Team NL in the second semi final of the Alicante Match Cup.

After going down 2-0 despite winning both starts, young American Edegran rallied his troops and pulled one back to keep his hopes of making it to the final alive.

However Postma answered back, controlling the pre-start of race four and leading all the way round the two-lap course to take the match win and secure a place in the final against Yann Guichard’s Spindrift.

Edegran will face Jonas Warrer in the petit final for the final podium place.
