Round robin action will continue tomorrow at the Brasil Sailing Cup 24/4/08
An unusually light and shifty northerly breeze prevented the intended completion of the round robins for both Groups A and B on day two of the Brasil Sailing Cup. Only the six skippers and teams from Group B were able to race today.
But the outcome one of these matches will determine the placings of the top three teams who will advance to the Quarter Finals, along with the top two who will emerge from the Repechage in order to advance.
World Match Racing Tour veteran Paolo Cian (ITA) and his Team Shosholoza, who finished with four wins in this round, are hoping Peter Wibroe (DEN), the reigning European Match Race Champion, defeats Bjorn Hansen (SWE). Seeing as Hansen defeated Cian, the Italian would win a tie-break. Round robin action continues tomorrow, along with the start of the Repechage.
Results after Day Two:
Paolo Cian, Team Shosholoza 4-1
Bjorn Hansen, Alandia Sailing Team 3-1
Mattias Rahm, Stenna Bulk Sailing Team 2-2
Henrique Haddad, Giant Sailing Team 2-3
Peter Wibroe, Wibroe Sailing Team 1-3
Pierre Antoine Morvan, Equipe de France espoir de match racing 1-3
