“They (his crew) thought they were a little too conservative on the first beat, the second beat they just got into a special lane and it was just amazing. Every one of these regattas is like this. We came out really strong on the first day and everyone was like: ‘Quantum are going to walk away with this’…and we thought ‘no that is just not going to happen we will have our time at the back of the fleet’ and we have a couple of times here.

"I think we are sailing as well as we can right now, the guys keep control of everything they can and I think this will be a great event. And in saying that yesterday we got all that we wanted, all that we talked about, we got the start we wanted, but it was just wrong. One of the things in this fleet that people perhaps don’t appreciate unless they see it up close, is that we did not sail that bad and we ended up where we were. Every mistake you make is pounced upon, and that is about the calibre of the sailors out there.”

“A win is very important to us. We possibly let one place slip over the day but we are just about hanging on to Quantum Racing. We have had three wins at this regatta and so if we can just be a little more consistent when we are in the middle of the pack, we sort of feel that is the next step for us. It was impressive to see Quantum recover in the second race though.

"A fifth then would have tightened this regatta right up but they sailed brilliantly and are fast. That is the ability, to claw your way out. Overall here and for the series it is still reasonably close.”
