VIDEO: Denmark's Sailing Prince beats Crown Prince at ISAF Nations Cup 2013

The match-racing centre in Middelfart, Denmark hosted Frederik the Crown Prince of Denmark for a very special match-race. It was all part of the show for spectators who had come to watch some of the world's top young sailors compete for the ISAF Nation's Cup.

The Crown Prince was skippering his four-man crew of Denmark’s Olympic legends; Jesper Bank (Olympic gold medallist, in soling in Barcelona 1992 and in Sydney 2000), Thomas Jacobsen (Olympic gold in soling in 2000), Henrik Blakskjær (Olympic gold medal in the soling in 2000) and Peter Lang (Olympic bronze medal in London in 2012). 

Their opponents were the young guns of Danish match-racing Nicolai Sehested and his crew; Thomas Hedegaard, Jesper Blom, Søren Secher and Peter Popp Wibroe. They had an unbeaten record in the competition going into the royal exhibition match. 

In the competition proper two teams made it through to the semi-finals. Australia's David Gilmore went through as did Denmark's Sehested and his crew.
