#MatchRacing - Kinsale skipper Philip Bendon and team made an impression on the first day of the 19th Match Race Germany in Langenargen yesterday (Thursday 12 May).

Ireland's top ranked match racers Bendon Race Team are currently ranked joint third in the two-day round robin after picking up three wins, as did Nelson Mettraux's Geneva Match Race Team, Dejan Presen's Lumba team, Przemek Tarnacki's Energy Yacht Racing team and Pierre Rhimbault's Matchtogether.

The day was dominated by the favourites Jablonski Racing, the German/Polish entry skippered by Karol Jablonski, and Poland's Lukasz Wosinski-led Delphina Sailing Team, both on four wins out of five heading into the second of five days' racing.

Only the top eight of 12 teams will qualify for the weekend's quarter finals on Lake Constance.
