Sopot Match Race, the latest event on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, saw an impressive come-from-behind victory for British skipper Ian Williams' GAC Pindar team on a day that seemed set to be sailed in light northerly winds.

One of the most exciting developments in the Alpari World Match Racing Tour for 2014 is the addition of Sopot Match Race into its roster of events.
A little over a week has passed since Hansen Sailing Team won the 20th anniversary edition of Stena Match Cup Sweden.
