Tortugas Open Final Set

Ellerstina face La Dolfina today

Over the weekend, four teams went head-to-head to fight for their place in the 81st Tortugas Open. 
On Saturday 9 October, defending champions, Ellerstina, secured their 15th consecutive Tortugas Open Final following their 12-8 victory against Jockey Club Open winners, La Ensenada. 
The following day, Sunday 10 October, the Semi Final between La Dolfina Saudi and RS Murus Sanctus saw Pablo Mac Donough and Juan Martín Nero face their previous team mates of 10 years, Adolfo Cambiaso and David ‘Pelón’ Stirling, for the first time; and as expected it was a thrilling Semi Final to watch with only a narrow 11-10 score gifting La Dolfina Saudi their spot in the Final. 
These results mean that for the 11th consecutive year, The Tortugas Open Final on Saturday 16 October will be played between Ellerstina and La Dolfina Saudi, will the defending champions retain their title?
