Through seven flights of racing the leaderboard is tightly packed at the 69th Argo Group Gold Cup. Due to the nature of the round robin format, where crews switch in and out of boats, not every crew has sailed the same number of races. But what’s important to note is that every team has suffered at least one loss – there are no undefeated teams remaining.
Johnie Berntsson, Torvar Mirsky and Harry Price hold the top spot with 4 points from five races. Eric Monnin, Chris Poole and Ian Williams each have 3 points.

The first four flights of the 69th Argo Group Gold Cup hosted by the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club are in the books and Australian Torvar Mirsky is out to the early lead.
Mirsky has won all three of his matches to post a 3-0 record, followed closely by Eric Monnin and Ian Williams, who are both at 2-0.
The forecast conditions of 15 to 20 knots never materialized this morning because the overnight frontal system moved through quicker than expected. A northerly wind of 8 to 10 knots is blowing across Hamilton Harbour and making for quick work of the racing.
Principal Race Officer David Campbell-James hopes to complete nine flights of racing today.
