DICKSON, Cameron APPLETON, Simon DICKEY and Brian TRUBOVICH qualified for the Championship last weekend in a very light round robin known as the feeder series. Kiwi Match were fortunate enough to qualify above this feeder series and earned a direct entry to the event. Also featuring this year is Simon MINOPRIO and his Vision Yachting team and his younger brother Adam MINOPRIO who won the MRX Winter Match Racing Series Champion series to gain entry.
For this event the Kiwi Match team is reunited with all but one of the original members, with Laurie JURY joined by Daniel MACLEAN, Robbs HIELKEIMA, Damon JOLLIFFE and Nick BASTOW. BASTOW is replacing Brad MARSH due to illness. BASTOW was previously a member of Graeme SUTHERLANDS' Pulse team and has spent an enormous amount of time sailing the MRX's.
