Sir Ben Ainslie and Francesco Bruni draw First Blood in Semis: "In the very light and shifty conditions, the Semi Finals were delayed after only one race in each match. Sir Ben Ainslie (GBR) BART/Argo Group defeated Adam Minoprio (NZL) Team Alpari FX in a runaway. Ainslie was masterful in picking his way through the shifts and taking the best of the puffs. The sole race between Argo Group Gold Cup defending champion Taylor Canfield (ISV) USone and Francesco Bruni (ITA) Luna Rossa went to Bruni by maybe a bow roller. In the three-lap puff hopper, the lead changed on wind shifts, penalties. Then with Canfield in the lead approaching the final windward mark on starboard, he had a windless mark rounding and a slower spinnaker set. . . ."

WMRT - News: "Bermuda (12th October 2013): English conditions prevailed on Hamilton Harbour today as a trough passed over Bermuda bringing with it ultra-light winds and drizzly rain for the Semi Final round of the Argo Group Gold Cup, the penultimate round of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. Matters were made no easier for the Race Committee when in the middle of proceedings, the wind turned inside out and there was a 180° wind shift. As a result only the first flight of Semi Finals racing was sailed."
