ADAM BARBOZA AND PAULALEWIN ARE TOP PLACERS

by Keith Taylor on 9 Oct 2000
HAMILTON, BERMUDA, October 9, 2000-Adam Barboza won the Black Seal Cup
for
the Bermuda National Match Racing Championship on Sunday, and Paula
Lewin
was second, earning the two Bermudian match racers the remaining two
places
in this year's 2000 Colorcraft Gold Cup. Sponsored by Goslings, the two
skippers and their crews will compete as Team Black Seal during the
Gold
Cup, to be sailed at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, October 22-29 2000.

Barboza earned his title as the Bermuda National Champion of Match Race
Sailing after just one day's sailing on Saturday. He advanced to the
Sunday
semi-finals with a perfect 7-0 record but Sunday racing was abandoned
for
lack of wind and the outcome was decided on the basis of the previous
day's
racing. Barboza's seven bullets and Lewin's six victories and one loss
resulted in first and second places for the pair.

This was the second year running that Barboza was named National Match
Race
Sailing Champion.

Eight skippers contested this year's championship that started on
Saturday
in International One Designs (IODs) in ideal sailing conditions - a 10
to
12-knot southerly breeze and bright sunshine. The passage of a cold
front
overnight killed any chance of racing on Sunday, with rain and calm
conditions initially forcing a postponement, before sailing was
cancelled
early in the afternoon.

Final results were:
1. Adam Barboza 7-0
2. Paula Lewin 6-1
3. Andreas Lewin 4-3
4. Glenn Astwood 4-3

Now in the 52nd year of competition for the King Edward VII Trophy, the
Colorcraft Gold Cup is raced in 33-foot International One Design sloops
on
short windward-leeward courses inside Hamilton Harbour, within view of
spectators ashore. The event gets under way on October 22, with
qualifying
rounds for the 16 unseeded teams. The eight top skippers from the
qualifiers
will race against eight seeded skippers in a knock-out competition to
decide
the eventual winner. The finals will be sailed October 29, followed by
the
official Colorcraft Gold Cup prizegiving.

This is the second year that Colorcraft has sponsored the Gold Cup
event.

sourcing printing, color separation and binding facilities for the
