Australian Peter Gilmour is one of the most respected and feared competitors on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. He is a four-time ISAF Match Racing World Champion and has been involved in various America’s Cup campaigns, most recently with Ernesto Bertarelli's Alinghi Team, winners of the 32nd America's Cup.

Gilmour started sailing at the age of seven and competed in his first World Championship at the age of 16. He has sailed in everything from dinghies to offshore yachts, having competed in both the Sydney-Hobart and Fastnet races but it’s been on the World Tour where he has achieved unrivalled success. His YANMAR Racing team will need to be on top of their game in 2012 if they are to protect that record against the likes of Ian Williams’ GAC Pindar team.
