“The pin end boat was suddenly following us upwind about nine knots which was not good for us. We were very lucky that we did not touch the boat itself because that meant we could continue. And at 20 seconds after the start I would have taken anything other than a last and so a sixth represents a good fight back.”

“We were just over the layline and we lost 200 metres by doing that. From there it was a drag race, there was no way back. The leading boats were in the rich-get-richer scenario. At the top we got close but then got bad air from Bronenosec, and then Alegre, and then Quantum, and suddenly from being nearly second we were fifth again. It was that kind of day.

"That was our chance. It is a long season, right. You know how close it was at the end of last season. Any point counts. Any point you lose now can be a place lost at the end of the season. I am sure Azzurra and Quantum Racing will be the top boats so it is a battle for the owner-drivers. But we are better organised than last year and we are more stable.

"It is an improvement on last year but also we have room for improvement. It is so close. It is so tough. If you get a clear lane it is good but if you don’t and a boat tacks on you then you have to do two more tacks and that is it. You are out of the game. It is so close.”
