Match Racing Highlights - RC44 Marstrand Cup - published on Jul 29, 2015: The opening day of the RC44 Marstrand Cup saw Bronenosec Sailing Team consolidate its lead at the top of the 2015 RC44 Match Racing championship.
Russian consistency pays off in Marstrand - RC Forty Four: "... After winning Tuesday's match racing, Bronenosec has only finished off the podium in one fleet race, which Italian tactician Michele Ivaldi puts down to a combination of going the right way, his skipper steering well and good boat speed, thanks to trimmers Paul Westlake and Maciel Cicchetti. "They did a fantastic job - we had clean starts, clean lanes upwind and the speed did most of it. We got a few good shifts and all the manoeuvres were done flawlessly from the crew."..."
Day 1 Fleet Racing Highlights - RC44 Marstrand Cup - published on Jul 29, 2015: Just one point separates the top three teams after the opening day of fleet racing at the RC44 Marstrand Cup.
