Danes win WIM Series Helsinki:
Helsinki, Finland (June 29, 2018) – A big change in the weather brought a strong breeze from the north for the final day of racing of the 2018 Helsinki Women’s Match, the first event of the 2018 WIM Series. After three days of racing in bright sunshine, it was the experienced Danish Team Kattnakken that defeated Swedish Team Bergqvist Match Racing in a very blustery final series.
The day began with the semi finals. The top team from the round robin, Marinella Laaksonen’s Finnish L2 Match Racing, had the hard decision of choosing their opponent. They chose Johanna Bergqvist’s team, which in hindsight may have been the wrong decision given the semi final outcome.
