Lysekil Women's Match Overall: Team Mac crowned World Champions

by Women's International Match Racing Series 10 Aug 18:36 BST 5-10 August 2019

This year's edition of Lysekil Women's Match - the world's greatest match racing competition for female sailors - is over. Lucy Macgregor, with her Team Mac, sailed home the gold in Lysekil Women's Match, and this year's Women's Match Racing World Championship 2019.

Macgregor showed why she is the two-time reigning world champion when she won over Claire Leroy with 3-0 in the tough final, taking home the gold, and 300 000 Swedish kronor in prize money.

- I am honestly speechless! Absolutely thrilled, such a fantastic feeling, says Macgregor right after the final finish.

The bronze went to Pauline Courtois, and her Match in Pink by Normandy Elite Team, after defeating the Dutch Match Racing Team 2-1.

Anna Holmdahl White, project manager for Lysekil Women's Match, sums up the week:
- We are super happy! What a week, great sailing with good weather conditions and such a strong line-up. Great interest from both the media and audience. This year's Lysekil Women's Match was like a festival, just as we like it.
