Match Racing at VOR Lisbon Stopover
The Associação Portuguesa da Classe Access organised Access Class Match Race using 303 dinghies on Tuesday 5th June during the Volvo Ocean Race Stopover in Lisbon.
The event was a great success, all held within the confines of the harbour. The programme was contested by 6 teams comprising one sailor from each VOR boat and one disabled sailor from APCA member clubs in a round robin with quarter and finals to find a winner.
The day provided excellent breeze and the 303 excelled as a match racing boat, praised by all, despite some unorthodox weight transfer techniques!
The only disappointment was not all teams sent a representative as they were too busy preparing their boats for the nationals, but there were some quality sailors and competitive sailing.
