Sailing news from around the world:

Match Race Germany – The picturesque town of Langenaren on the shores of Lake Constance will be flooded with sailors and spectators this week for Match Race Germany on May 28-June 1. As well as hosting the German leg of the World Match Racing Tour, there will be live bands, food and other entertainment for the weeklong festival. Match Race Germany is the second stop on the 2009 Tour, with an elite line-up of twelve teams sailing the Bavaria Match 35 in pursuit of 50,000 in prize money.  Among the competitors lined up for the Tour event are reigning World Champion Ian Williams (GBR) and Bahrain Team Pindar, number 1 ranked ISAF sailor Seb Col (FRA) with the French Team/K-Challenge, current Tour leader Adam Minoprio (NZL) of ETNZ/BlackMatch Racing and four time Match Racing World Champion Peter Gilmour (AUS) backed up by Yanmar Racing. The list of talent doesn’t stop there with Triple Olympic Gold Ben Ainslie and Team Origin starting their assault on the World Championship. Defending Match Race Germany Champion Damien Ihel with his French Match Racing Team is also back to try and retain his crown, a pretty tall order some might think.
