Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

A DUO from the Fre­man­tle Sail­ing Club snared bronze at the World Match Rac­ing Tour Fi­nal in Swe­den last week.

The Red­line Rac­ing team, made up of Fre­man­tle Sail­ing Club’s Matt Jer­wood and Alex Landwehr along­side South of Perth Yacht Club’s Pa­trick Vos and Niall Mor­row, took third place in the in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory in their fi­nal bout.

Af­ter go­ing down to the Robert­son Rac­ing team 3-0 in the semi-fi­nal, the Red­line Rac­ing team came out fir­ing in the third-place de­cider, win­ning 2-0.

Jer­wood said they were dis­ap­pointed with their starts in the semi-fi­nal loss but were ec­static to bring home the bronze.

“We headed into the race for third or fourth pumped,” he said. “We came out swing­ing, we fought hard and we sailed fast.

“For­tu­nately for us we were faster than our op­po­nent Chris Steele, beat­ing him 2-0.”

The team also won $24,000 in prize money.
