"We had a great first race, the second race was not so good, its certainly easy to fall back in this fleet, everyone is so good, so its nice to come away with a good average score for the day.

"We have managed to get off the start line pretty well and in the races when we haven’t done so well we have made bad starts, so it’s really come down to the starting and picking the side that we have liked off the line.

"The core of the team sailed on the team on the mini maxi last year and bits of communication from sailing together last year makes a big difference, it’s just a different class but the same principles are applying.

"It’s so easy to have a bad race. Andy did a really great job today, its tough on the owners having three races, we were out tyere for nearly six hours so Andy did a great job in that last race with great concentration and focus."

"In the bad days when you need to support each other, you need friends around you and for sure I think we are not doing a perfect job but I think we know were we make a mistake and can improve during the season and at this event. We are lucky that we are still quite close to the leading boats except for Alegre who are doing a great job.

"When John Kostecki has a good week, it’s difficult to beat him. I hope that he will have some other bad days. We are pleased about our speed. We are happy about many things. We need to learn as much as we can from the mistakes that we are doing because for sure we are doing some mistakes.

"This fleet is very different to last year you know there are 12 boats and anybody can win. An average place of 4th maybe will be what you need to win the circuit and this event. In this fleet. There are plenty of champions in this fleet."
