Fremantle is the first Australian city to host the prestigious World Match Racing Tour.

Match racing pits competitors against one another in a head-to-head knockout format, with racing close to shore making for thrilling viewing.

Great Britain’s GAC Pinder, skippered by six-time world champion Ian Williams, took out the competition 3-0 over Hans Wallen’s Swedish team.

The best finishing Australian team was Matt Jerwood’s Redline Racing which finished fifth.

The tour’s next stop is Long Beach in the US in April.
