Johor Bahru, Malaysia (13th Feb 2015): Ian Williams (GBR) has one hand on the ISAF World Championship trophy tonight after moving to match point in his Monsoon Cup Malaysia Semi-Final against Eric Monnin (SUI). What should have the GAC Pindar skipper sleeping even more soundly tonight is that his arch-rival for the world title, Taylor Canfield (ISV), is 2-0 down in his battle with Mathieu Richard (FRA). All things considered, Friday the 13th really couldn’t have gone better for the Briton, bidding for a record fifth World Championship title on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.
