Ian Williams Wins Match Race France and heads straight to Bermuda

Saturday saw Team GAC Pindar’s Ian Williams take the Match Race France trophy and top the tour standings after 6 events. Williams did it by defeating the young New Zealander, Will Tiller 2-0 in a downpour and freshening breeze off Marseille.  Luckily he and the crew had MUSTO MPX Race to keep them dry!

This means that Williams now takes a nine point lead into the final two events of the year, the Gold Cup in Bermuda which starts today and then the season finale, the Monsoon Cup in early December in Malaysia.
