Sails away!

The Portugal Match Cup, a stage of the World Match Racing Tour, will return to the Portimão Marina between Wednesday and Sunday next week.

Twelve teams representing the crème-de-la-crème of world sailing including Britain’s Ian Williams, 2010 winner Peter Gilmour from Australia or Frenchman Mathieu Richard will be competing head-to-head over the five days offering top class sailing action off the Algarve coast to enthusiasts and holidaymakers alike.

As on previous occasions, the Portimão Portugal Junior Cup involving the best national and international young sailors will take

place simultaneously.

Meanwhile, Clube Naval de Portimão’s Santiago Sampaio took silver behind winner Diogo Pereira from Cascais at last weekend’s Portuguese Youth Championships in Tavira while Lagos’ Tiago Serra finished third.
