“We made a little mistake as we rounded that last island to Bronenosec but we need to analyse and then reset our minds very quickly because it was a good day. After a disappointing day yesterday we had to come back strong and we did that. We are fighting for the top spot and everything is on for tomorrow and Saturday.

"We had a complete good long team meeting after Wednesday, we sat down and went through the list and then after that we said ‘it is not going to happen again’ and now we look forwards to the next two days. We had two clean starts, the boat is going well and then it was a little easier to let Vasco do his job.

"I think today we need to be pleased. The fleet is closer than ever, that makes it so exciting because only a couple of metres can make a big difference, if you cross it’s good and if you don’t it can be a completely different world. We are the whole day fighting for every inch on the race course and that is great for us but also to watch from outside I think.”

“The first race today we were second or third all the way round and just had to keep out arms out to the finish. On the second race, the coastal, we thought we would do alright on the right but it just went a bit soft, so we were playing catch up, and as we were sailing around the rocks it was a case of knowing we were pushed back and it was likely we would stay back.

"We managed to get to sixth place and stayed in touch with fifth, with Sled and Platoon ahead. Then reaching there were some pretty short legs in the end and we went for our big A4, and we jumped on Platoon when they peeled and then in the last two or three minutes we were able to get through Sled at the finish. So two and a three today we are really happy with.

"On the coastal race there was the long fifteen or twenty minutes tack and it was a case of making sure we did not lose any distance on those around us and then it was a case of staying on the transom of Platoon and then Sled, you have to patient and wait for others to make mistakes. There were different ideas of which sails to put up at different times.”
