Back-to-back Match Cup Sweden champion Phil Robertson will not be back in 2018 to defend his title due to other sailing commitments. This leaves the field open and guarantees a new Top Dog for this year.

Returning for 2018 will the the GKSS Women’s Trophy. 5 all-female teams will be competing alongside the open class, racing the same M32 catamarans, to claim the first female class trophy sailed in the M32.

Take a look at the teams hungry to get their hands on the trophy this year:
