Match Race Germany and the Return of Mathieu Richard Beckons
London, UK – 18 May 2011: Stage two of the World Match Racing Tour, Match Race Germany, will get underway next week in Langenargen where Mathieu Richard will renew his quest to land the World Champion title that has so far eluded him.
The picturesque setting of Lake Contsance will provide an altogether different challenge for the six teams who competed in the Bay of Marseille at Match Race France. The prospect of lighter winds and the arrival of a new fleet of Bavaria 40S boats will provide added spice to the racing which takes place from May 25-29.
Racing in Germany follows last week’s thrilling season opener, Match Race France, where victorious debut Tour Card Holder Damien Iehl threw his hat firmly into the ring as a serious contender to the 2011 Championship.
