2019 Argo Group Gold Cup Update

The addition of four of the world’s top match racers, including Women’s World No. 1 Pauline Courtois of France, makes the field for the 2019 Argo Group Gold Cup one of the most diverse and cements its status as the preeminent match race regatta.

Courtois and World No. 3 Harry Price of Australia, World No. 5 Maxime Mesnil of France and World No. 15 Chris Poole of the U.S. are recent entrants to the regatta, scheduled May 6-11 and awarding $100,000 in prize money.

They join a field that already features World No. 1 Ian Williams of Great Britain, No. 2 Eric Monnin of Switzerland and No. 4 Ettore Botticini of Italy, as well as Women’s World No. 6 Lucy Macgregor of Great Britain. Macgregor had a magical run at last year’s Gold Cup to place fourth overall, the best finish ever by a women’s crew.

Also entered is World No. 7 Nicklas Dackhammar of Sweden, No. 8 Toravr Mirsky of Australia and No. 13 Johnie Berntsson of Sweden.

In total, the field includes two crews each from Australia, France, Great Britain and Sweden and one each from Italy, Switzerland and the U.S. The final entrant will be the Bermuda National Match Race champion.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the way the lineup has filled out,” said event chairperson Leatrice Oatley, a past commodore of host Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. “To have two of the best women’s match racers alongside the top five male skippers shows the appeal of the Gold Cup and racing in Bermuda. We’re very happy to have such a diverse and international field.”

Courtois, Price and Mesnil are all making their debuts at the Argo Group Gold Cup. None of the three has been to Bermuda before, although their knowledge of the Gold Cup is steeped in its tradition.

“We’ve never been to Bermuda before but we know that the Argo Group Gold Cup is a prestigious regatta with many famous winners,” said the 30-year-old Courtois, who won the 2018 Women’s International Match Racing Series with two firsts in the five-event series. “The Gold Cup is one of the major match racing events and it’s an honor to be invited.”

Price’s Down Under Racing team from Sydney, Australia, enters the Argo Group Gold Cup as the youngest crew alongside Botticini’s CNVA Sailing Team from Italy. Both skippers will be aged 23 during the Argo Group Gold Cup. Price won the Youth Match Racing World Championship in 2017, over Botticini, and has since gone on to post some top finishes on the world tour, including third place at last year’s Regata de Portugal.
