Marinepool´s Richard team to beat at Stena Match Cup Sweden!

Marinepool has been official supplier of the French Sailing Federation FFV since 2006 and is through this partnership also the official supplier of the French national match race team. And this Equipe de France brings a lot of joy to Marinepool and it´s followers, showing again and again that it is the team to beat on the World Match Race Tour.

With Mathieu Richard, Damien Ihl and Sébastien Col the FFV has three teams who can beat everybody on the tour and have a hugely successful season.

After winning the first event in 2010, the Match Race France and repeating the result at the Korea Match Cup, Richard is firmly in the lead of this year´s rankings. But that is obviously not enough for the Frenchman. At the Stena Match Cup Sweden, currently held in Marstrand, Sweden, he leads the scorboard once again with 4 wins agains no losses after the first days, sailing against the best match racers in the world.
