Up against the youngest skipper representing the French Match Racing Team, Pierre-Antoine Morvan, The Wave Muscat go into the series as the favourites.
'Our preparation coming into this event wasn't the best, with our bowman Graeme Spence getting a late call up for an America's Cup job' commented Mirsky; 'but today we got all the practise we needed against Richard and it helped us get into our groove against the dark horse of the season in the semi finals.'
The quarter final series against Richard saw The Wave Muscat up against the wall, but they gave their all and managed to take out the series 3-2. After a short break it was Bjorn Hansen who was next on the chopping block, going down to The Wave Muscat 3-1.
