WMRT - Ian Williams hits the bricks: "Bermuda (11th October 2013): It was another tense day on Hamilton Harbour where the first-to-three Quarter Final matches of the Argo Group Gold Cup, the penultimate event of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour were being played out. With the wind having veered into the southwest, racing took place under a scorching sun in a shifty 7-10 knots of breeze.

Sir Ben Ainslie’s Argo Group-backed team and Taylor Canfield’s USone both won their matches 3-1, respectively against Bjorn Hansen’s eWork Sailing Team and Ian Williams’ GAC Pindar.
