Stena Match Cup Sweden Women’s Trophy - Preview

Any team can win in the new Olympic class

Two Swedish female sailors, Anna Kjellberg and Linda Rahm, are in challenge to be the one team to represent Sweden at the Olympics. In their aspiration for the Olympics, Stena Match Cup Sweden is an important event due to the introduction of the Olympic Elliott boats.

Among the female competitors we find the favorite and the No 1 in the world, Lucy MacGregor from Great Britain, as well as last year’s winner, ranked third, Katie Pellew, who was named Spithill before her marriage. In the lineup for this year, the young German team of Silke Hahlbrook, ranked four in the world, the merited Lotte Meldgaard Pedersen from Denmark, and Ekaterina Skudina from Russia, who won the European Championship against MacGregor in May this year, are all hot candidates to the Finals.
