The Alpari World Match Racing Tour is heading to Switzerland. The St. Moritz Match Race, the fifth stage of the year-long sailing regatta, will be held from August 28 to September 2, 2012 and Alpari UK will be there.
The tour got under way in Germany this February and is set to wrap up in Malaysia in December. There are 8 races in all – Switzerland is the fifth. The winner of the race will be crowned the “King of the Mountains”, seeing as how the hosting St. Moritz is nearly 2,000 meters above sea level.
“We’re ready. In St Moritz we’ll have the four-person keelboat, the BLU26. It’s a highly maneuverable yacht, but sailing in the Alps can be very tricky and the conditions are often unpredictable,” said 2011 AWMRT champion Ian Williams, whose team currently occupies second place on the leaderboard, four points behind Swede Bjorn Hansen.
Spectators at the event will also have the chance to stop by the Alpari Clubhouse at the St. Moritz Sailing Club. There they will be able to speak with Alpari representatives and give Forex a try at our demo trading station.
