Scott wants to keep unbeaten run alive at Miami regatta

25 January 2015 / 19:15

World champion sailor Giles Scott is hoping to keep his unbeaten regatta run alive when he takes to the water at the first ISAF World Cup of 2015.

Scott has an unbeaten run in the heavyweight Finn class dating back 15 months and seven world-ranking regattas.

And he heads to Miami’s Biscayne Bay as part of a 64-strong British lineup that will go head to head with more than 800 sailors from around the world next week.

Scott is joined by the likes of Luke Patience, Stuart Bithell and Bryony Shaw in America and is expecting tough competition to keep his record going.

“It [the unbeaten run] is absolutely something I’d like to continue,” he said.

“Every regatta I do is incredibly important, but that being said I do really try and focus on each event as it comes so we’ll have to see what Miami brings, I’m sure it will be great racing.

“I think the fleet will be very strong this year with only a handful of the top guys missing. Last year we were plagued by lack of wind so hopefully this year we get good Miami conditions!”
