Greenslade and Fraser kept apart

Local sailors Joshua Greenslade and Lance Fraser have been kept apart for the group stage of the 2013 Argo Group Gold Cup.

National match racing champion Greenslade has been pitted in Group Two which includes reigning Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT) champion Ian Williams (Britain) and four-time Olympic gold medallist Ben Ainslie (Britain).

Ainslie and Williams are past Gold Cup winners as is Frenchman Mathieu Richard who is also included in Group Two.

Fraser is in Group One which also boasts reigning Gold Cup champion Taylor Canfield (US Virgin Islands), past AWMRT champion Adam Minoprio (New Zealand) and past Gold Cup winner Johnie Berntsson (Sweden).

Fraser received an invite to compete in the Gold Cup after one of the qualifiers from the feeder events could not make the commitment.

Greenslade and Fraser are among the 20 teams bidding for $100,000 in prize-money this year.

The King Edward VII Gold Cup is the oldest match-racing trophy in the world for competition involving one-design yachts (International One Design classic racing sloop).

Gold Cup racing is due to get underway tomorrow in Hamilton Harbour.
