World Sailing News – 29 May 2013


Mat Belcher and Will Ryan continued their winning ways at the Delta Lloyd Regatta over the weekend. For Belcher it was his 15th consecutive Men’s 470 regatta victory. His run stretches back to November 2011 where Belcher and Malcolm Page took the Australian Championship ahead of the Perth 2011 ISAF Worlds. Belcher got off to winning ways with Ryan at the 2012 ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne and the transition has been seamless. Their next stop is the 470 Europeans from 8-15 June in Formia, Italy so we only have a short wait to see if Belcher can extend his run.
