Price is right on first day of Argo Gold Cup in Bermuda

May 7, 2019

HAMILTON, Bermuda (May 7, 2019) — An active first day of racing at the 69th Argo Group Gold Cup saw 36 matches completed across nine flights of racing and led to a first-timer holding the Day 1 lead.
 
Harry Price of Australia, the 23-year-old debutante who was the 2017 Youth match racing world champion, leads the regatta with five points from six races. He stands tied with grizzled veteran Ian Williams of the U.K., the 42-year-old six-time match racing world champion, but beat Williams head-to-head in Flight 6 to hold the tiebreak advantage.
 
“I’m really impressed with Harry,” said Williams, who won the Argo Group Gold Cup in 2006 when Price was 11 years old. “The boats are difficult and there’s a lot to get your head around. So good on him.”
 
“Bermuda gave us an interesting day,” said Price. “It was quite shifty and with the windward mark being tucked underneath the buildings, that made it anyone’s race. We struggled to win the pre-starts but managed to get off the line even. Then we sailed our own race and did well to pick the shifts and get the lead.”
