Monsoon Cup Wild Card Hansen Tips Ainslie for World Championship
London, UK – 16 November, 2010
The Monsoon Cup has announced that Bjorn Hansen (SWE), Hansen Global Team, will be the Wildcard entrant for the World Match Racing Tour’s championship deciding finale in Malaysia, which will be staged from 30 November to 5 December.
Speaking to www.wmrt.com Hansen said, “I actually think Ben [Ainslie] will win, he’s in good form. Having not looked too good in Denmark he was right back to his very best in Bermuda. I think TEAMORIGIN pulling out of the America’s Cup means that he can now fully focus on match racing. I think he’ll win in Malaysia and is the one we all have to beat.”
Hansen, who has a strong record at the Monsoon Cup having twice finished on the podium, is relishing the chance of getting back to Kuala Terengganu and signing off his season with a strong performance.
