Minoprio and Mirsky lead Sunseeker Australia Cup


At the end of the qualifying round of the Sunseeker Australia Cup being sailed on the Swan River in the centre of Perth, the two top-ranked match race sailors in the world, Adam Minoprio (NZL) and Torvar Mirsky (AUS), along with Ian Williams (GBR) are on top with only one loss each. In the head-to-head, local WA sailor Mirsky got the win over Minoprio. Seve Jarvin and Evan Walker were the sailors to miss the quarter finals which will be sailed today.

Two courses are in use – the “downtown” course next to Perth's Riverside Drive and the Matilda Bay course, closer to the newly revamped Royal Perth Yacht Club, once famous as the home of the America's Cup.
