Williams wins fourth World Match racing title

Sailor Ian Williams equals Peter Gilmour's record as his GAC Pindar team win World Match racing title at Monsoon Cup.

    Ian Williams quit his career as a lawyer in 2005, to pursue success on the sea. 

    Since then it has been pretty much plain sailing with the Brit winning his fourth World Match racing title at the Monsoon Cup on Friday. He has now equaled the record set by Australian sailor Peter Gilmour - who retired earlier this week.
