Fremantle Open Match Race 2000

by Freemantle Sailing Club on 4 Nov 2000
Three America's Cup syndicates will be represented at an
International match racing event organised by Fremantle Sailing Club in
December 2000.

Oracle Racing (USA) represented by Chris Dickson.
One World Challenge (USA) represented by Kelvin Harrap
Prada Challenge (ITA) represented by Gavin Brady

The club is also expecting the confirmation of three other America's Cup
syndicates who are also looking seriously at being represented in this event.

Fremantle Sailing Club will be using their fleet of J24's and other interested
participants in the regatta include Chris Main (JPN), Xavier Destremau (FRA),
Roberto Ferrarese (ITA), Marten Hedlung (SWE), Philippe Presti (FRA), Luca
Antonini (ITA) as well as local heroes Simon Sutherland (AUS), Gordon Lucas
(AUS) and Sebastien Destremau (AUS).

The regatta is being held from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 December 2000 at South
Beach. The participants will encounter similar conditions off Fremantle as in
Auckland where the next America's Cup will be held in 2002 / 2003.

"It is great for the community of Fremantle to have the interest of professional
match racers" said Geoff Bishop - Rear Commodore of Fremantle Sailing Club.
"This is the first of a series of International Match Racing events that will attract
high level yachtsman to sail in our waters" he concluded.
