Alpari World Match Racing Tour history in the making?

AWMRTKMC130106 484418 s

London, UK (17th April 2014): Ian Williams and his GAC Pindar team start the 2014 Alpari World Match Racing Tour with the aim, of course, of winning this year’s World Championship title. But as was the case in 2013, when Williams disappointingly finished overall runner-up to Taylor Canfield’s USone team, victory this year would be significant: To date Williams has won the Tour four times – in 2007-8 and 2011-12. If he can score a fifth World Championship victory this year, then he will surpass Peter Gilmour’s record (of wins in 1990, 1997-8 and 2006) and enter the history books as the person to have claimed the title the most times in the Championship’s 26 year history.
