In the quarterfinals, Bromby will be paired with reigning Swedish Match tour champion Magnus Holmberg, who knocked off American Andy Horton on Wednesday 3-1. Another interesting quarterfinal match-up pairs Americas Cup rivals Peter Holmberg and Ken Read. Neither had much trouble in the opening round. Peter Holmberg dispatched Kiwi ex-patriot Scott Dickson 3-0 while Read sent German Marcus Wieser packing 3-1. Other sailors advancing to the quarterfinals include illbruck match-racing coach Morten Henriksen, Pradas Gavin Brady, Ed Baird of St. Petersburg, Fla., and third seed Jes Gram-Hansen of Denmark. Outside of Conner, the only seeder skipper to fall was Andy Green, the starting helmsman for the British Americas Cup challenge.
