Match Cup Sweden - Williams in Final

 
Ian Williams to face Yann Guichard of France in Sunday's final

Ian Williams (GAC Pindar) took a 3-0 win over the young Aussie skipper Harry Price. Price had looked on top form through the Repechage and Quarter Final Stages, but fell victim to an on-form Williams.

Said Williams. “We felt strong in the starts, winning two of the three. In the other it felt good to overtake a team who are especially good on boat speed."

"The result puts the team in good stead for tomorrow’s final and we are looking forward to it.”

In the other semi-final Yann Guichard (Spindrift Racing) also took a 3-0 victory to knock out the only remaining local team, Nicklas Dackhammar’s Essiq Racing.

In the women's event, Renee Groeneveld from the Netherlands took a 3-0 victory over Australian Clare Costanzo’s Fusion Racing.

And Anna Östling (SWE), Team Anna a 3-0 win over Olivia Mackay (NZL), Sailing Team NZL.
