Match Race Germany

Yesterday saw the second day of the Swedish Match Tour's Match Race Germany which featured more light conditions.
With a weather front expected to enter the region yesterday evening competitors and spectators alike will experience an increase in both wind and sailing action for the remainder of the regatta.

In Group A-1, two flights were raced today bringing to a total of four completed. Poland's Karol Joblanski and his Team MK Café are undefeated at 3-0, with a bye, to set the pace. Also with three wins is Team New Zealand's Cameron Appleton. Denmark's Jes Gram-Hansen, currently fourth on the Swedish Match Tour Championship Rankings, is third with two wins against one loss and GBR Challenge boss Ian Walker has two wins against two losses.

Group A-2 took to the waters of Lake Constance for the first time today and Jesper Radich served notice that he is atop his game. Radich and crew, Anders Kristensen and Rasmus Winston, who recently won the European Match Racing Championships, posted a perfect day, registering four wins.
"The conditions were light today but pretty easy to read," said Radich. "You have to be `on' all the time in these conditions and read the course very closely."

"We won the Euros in a three-person boat and I have the same crew here this week so we are all very comfortable with each other and working very well together right now," Radich continued.

One win behind Radich is Ed Baird and Team Musto. Baird himself enters Match Race Germany on a roll, having won last week's Trofeo Locman - Elba Cup. Baird's only loss of the day was in his final match against Radich. Baird led the Danish crew until the final beat when Radich rolled the American to edge him out and protect the Dane's perfect day.
It was not a kind day to "hometown" competitors on Lake Constance. Defending champion Markus Wieser posted a 2-2 record while fellow German skippers Stefan Meister and Alexander Hagen posted records of 1-4 and 0-5, respectively.
Round robin racing continues tomorrow morning on the shores of Lake Constance. For all the latest results and news log on to
