Anna Östling and Rasmus Viltoft to compete at Stena Match Cup Sweden
Gothenburg, Sweden (10th May, 2015): It was a great weekend with the Volvo Spring Cup concluding first as a World Tour Event of the World Match Racing Tour Championship.

Ten teams put on a display of excellent match racing at the Royal Gothenburg Yacht Club over the two day event during the weekend. The Volvo Spring Cup was decided in a thrilling final between Team Anna Östling and the Danish team skippered by Rasmus Viltoft. The Danes won the final race with a close margin but both teams won entry tickets to compete at Stena Match Cup Sweden 2015 this coming summer.

“This is really great and we love competing at Marstrand. The competition will be tough when we enter the event but I’m counting on a strong support from the spectators on the cliffs”, says Anna Östling, reining World Champion of match racing.

After only loosing one point in the Round Robin, Östling defeated fellow GKSS-sailors team in a semi-final against Patrik Sturesson. Securing a spot in the final also meant they won the Swedish qualifying spot to Stena Match Cup but the girls soon made it clear they where hungry for more.
