Robertson 3rd, Tiller 6th at Korea Match Cup


This from Full Metal Jacket Racing (Tiller) ...

After four days of racing in Korea FMJ have ended up 6th in the Korea Match Cup, going down in the quarter finals to defending champion Bjorn Hansen of Sweden.


At the completion of the round robin FMJ were placed 6th with a score of 6 wins and 5 losses. With a narrow course and obstructions on each side racing was difficult and it was important to win the pre start and protect the favoured tack.
