“It was a spectacular day for us. You know it is a funny old sport. It is all about small increments and a few things fell our way today and obviously when you have a day like today, you want to bottle it, write it all down and remember it and do it all again tomorrow. That is what we hope is going to happen, but hey this is the toughest fleet in the world, we are just happy to give Ergin the wins today and looking forwards to doing it all agian tomorrow.

"We came into the top mark first time up bow to bow with Phoenix and Rán Racing, the top right and top left boats all together, after that we squeezed ahead on the run, we had a reasonable bit edge downwind and we sailed away. Fortunately the race finished downwind and we had a bigger lead than the race showed.

"We were on the back foot off the start line. We got tangled up with Gladiator. They were the only boat which managed to get out on the right and they had a reasonable race too. We picked the right side both times which helped a lot.”

“We are pleased with how we are sailing right now. We are happy about our consistency. That is the important point. It is all good for the classification of the world championships and it is very important for us. We did two very good starts and that makes it a little easier to manage the situation. When you are in the pack you have to choose and split. We hope that we continue that it continues like that.

"I feel we are sailing with not too much pressure on ourselves. We know there are plenty of baots can win but when you are eighth or ninth you are just looking to get seventh or eighth. You are not trying to win 20 points straight away. That is one thing we are doing quite well right now.”
