Team Mac Is 2017 Women’s Match Racing World Champion
Lucy Macgregor looks like she is a pro when it comes to Women’s Match Racing World Championship.
She has won the title for the second time in her career and she did it in style in Helsinki in Finland. The first time she won the coveted Women’s Match Racing World Championship was in 2010 in Newport, Rhode Island.
The British skipper had Charlotte Lawrence, Silja Frost, Imogen Stanley and Rosie Watkins support her in Team Mac. Lucy was happy to have won the championship for the 2nd time in her career. She is extra thrilled to claim the title because her Team Mac consists of new team members. They helped her to bits and enjoyed her guidance throughout the event in Helsinki.
Lucy is very happy for each one of the members of her team. All of them were brilliant during the event. She said that each and every crew member of Team Mac did their job to perfection and ten times more than can do for the whole week. She cannot hide her emotions and praises for her team members.
A look at the score line might make you think that Macgregor had an easy passage to lifting the title. But, in reality, there were lots of close matches and plenty of thrilling exchanges. The highlight of the finals was the entertaining battle between Team Mac and Team Anna during the semi-finals. It was a very tough battle with the lead changing like anything. It was very close and Team Mac managed to scrape through.
The finals between the Dutch Match Racing Team and Team Mac also featured plenty of hard battles. The starts and the wind shifts were the keys to winning the matches during the final day. Renée Groeneveld was the skipper of the Dutch team. Macgregor acknowledged that Renee is a brilliant sailor and also has a very good team.
