Match Racing: Bermuda Gold Cup

The racing between unseeded skippers had its second day.  One group was able to finish racing, and send its top 4 skippers on.  The other groups racing was blown out.

Topping Group 2 were a pair of American sailors, Andy Horton at 6-1 and Dalton Bergen at 5-2.  Next came Aussie Olympian Neville Whittey and then Team New Zealand backup skipper Cameron Appleton.

Among the sailors who failed to move on are John Cutler, Chris Larson and Jes Gram-Hansen.

When Group 1 resumes racing, there are 5 sailors in a position to take one of the 4 qualifying spots.  They are:  Chris Dickson, Murray Jones, Sten Mohr, Kelvin Harap and James Spithill.

Once the qualifying rounds are finished on Tuesday, the qualifying unseeded skippers move into a Wimbledon-style knock-out series, meeting the eight seeded skippers.  Among the matchups will be Andy Horton against Russell Coutts and Dalton Bergen against Ed Baird.
