Swedish Match Tour

The 2000 Swedish Match Sailing Tour is down to one event.  The upcoming event in Bermuda will not decide the title tour.  Frenchman Bertrand Pace clinched the title at the Danish Open sailed 15-20 August.

Pace finished second to Swede Magnus Holmberg who won his second consecutive event.  American Ed Baird was 3rd, Dane Sten Mohr 5th.  Representing Team New Zealand Cameron Appleton was 5th.  Even with a win of the Bermuda event, Team New Zealand can't overtake points leader Pace.

Another close points battle in Bermuda will be Magnus Holmberg in 3rd with 72 trying to fend off Peter Gilmour only a point back.

The Bermuda event will have a star filled, interesting line up.  Along with defending champion Andy Green of Great Britain, America's Cup winners Russell Coutts, Dean Barker and Dennis Conner are entered.  Among the other entries are: Ed Baird, Peter Gilmour, Magnus Holmberg and Peter Holmberg.

The waters off Bermuda should be filled with interesting rivalries and match ups 22 to 29 October.
