Lelystad, Netherlands (September 28, 2014) – Ian Williams and his GAC Pindar crew today continued their remarkable sequence of results by securing their fifth podium finish in a row in this season’s Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT), at the Dutch Match Cup.
Despite losing to Taylor Canfield (Team USone) in the final, Williams remains top of the leader board on 116 points. Canfield’s victory means he has closed the gap slightly on Williams, sitting in second place on 98 points.
Williams, who struggled slightly in qualifying as he got used to the boats and wind conditions in Lelystad qualified for the quarter finals in sixth position, setting up a quarter final tie against Phil Robertson of WAKA Racing.
After going 2-0 down to Robertson in the Quarter Final, Williams had to dig deep and utilise all of his match racing experience to make it to through. However, he quickly found his rhythm winning all three remaining races, to reach the Semi-Finals 3-2.
