Mirsky Racing Team finish second at Open de España

Posted on 01 May 2010 by Valencia Sailing

Lack of wind results in no racing on the final day of the Open de Espana Match Race, leaving MRT unable to vie for the title, finishing 2nd to Damien Iehl.

After a very solid week of racing MRT were awarded the silver medal when frustrating conditions ruled out any further racing. Light winds plagued the week and unfortunately the race committee could not fit in the format.

“It was tough to finish the regatta with only one loss in the round robin, Damien beat us on count back in stage one and that is the result that will stand for today” said Kinley Fowler, Trimmer.

MRT will now have a two week break before the second event of the World Match Racing Tour, Match Race Germany.

Mirsky Racing Team cruise into semifinals of Open de España

Posted on 30 April 2010 by Valencia Sailing

With fickle winds MRT hit the water this morning with 3 races remaining in the round robin. They dominated the prestart to win the first two races.

The third race of the day saw MRT face Frenchman Damien Iehl. MRT lost the prestart but attacked up the first windward leg to force a penalty on Iehl at the top mark. MRT remained on the Frenchman’s tail all around the course until Iehl luffed MRT around the finish mark, rather than sailing directly to the finish as required. An unorthodox call saw MRT awarded a penalty and the match was given to Iehl.

After the race with Iehl, MRT was placed 2nd in the round robin, meaning they would face Michele Perris of Monaco in the quarter final.

MRT regained their composure and went to defeat Perris 3-0 to advance to the semi final.

Tomorrow MRT will race the semi final against an opponent still to be decided.

Results:
MRT Torvar Mirsky def Michele Perris 3-0
Damien Iehl def. Ian Ainslie 3-1
PA Morvan def. Manu Weiller 3-1
Bjorn Hansen def. Peter Wibroe 3-1
9th Mads Ebler
10th Alvaro Marinho
11th William Tiller
12th Eugeny Neugodnikov

Mirsky Racing Team updates from Calpe

Posted on 27 April 2010 by Valencia Sailing

The late inclusion of the Mirsky Racing Team into the Open de España Match Race in Calpe, Spain will provide the team with invaluable training for the upcoming World Tour season.

The team finished a disappointing 8th place in the opening event of the WMRT, Match Race France. They will look to this event to train for the upcoming series of events which include; Match Race Germany, Korea Match Cup, Portugal Match Cup and Match Cup Sweden.

The Spanish event promises to be tough with fellow tour card holder Bjorn Hansen using the same opportunity to train.

This week MRT will have Torvar Mirsky, Kyle Langford, Kinley Fowler and newcomer Jakob Gustafsson from Black Swan Racing on the bow.

“The event will be sailed in Tom28 class yachts, which are quite small and manoeuvrable, this will surely sharpen out our boat handling and we are looking forward to getting back out on the water after a week off since France” said Trimmer Kinley Fowler.

Racing gets underway tomorrow at 11am local time, Predict Wind is forecasting light winds for the next few days which will test the teams strategically.
