“That last race, well you cannot say too many nice things about the way Alegre have sailed this entire regatta. We are getting better. There is still a lot of stuff for us to do. All the little subtle things that you have to do are there but we have a new challenge as Doug (DeVos) will come and steer the boat for the next two regattas.

"That is a new afterguard loop then as Ed Baird will sail as strategist and help with the boat speed loop. And so the good thing is we always have areas to work on, to gain. From Palma Vela to here (two weeks ago they won the Palma Vela training regatta) we are night and day better. But in terms of where we have to get to we are only laying the base line.

"I am still mad about the three points we gave up in the coastal race. I am a hard taskmaster, yes, but that is the expectation. The standard of the fleet is so high. I raced the boat in Copa del Rey and if the standard then was a 10, that now would be a ten. That is how much the fleet has gone on.”

“We spent a lot of time in Valencia training and we are happy with where we are. But we know this is all about improving now and working hard between events. We have to work hard to stay up there. I have come from Olympic Sailing and so to step into this arena with Rán was a great experience but then joining Alegre has been great.

"To now get a result after the hard work we have all put in over the winter has been satisfying. You have to just make no mistakes. Make a mistake and you are punished. Hard. Quantum Racing are the benchmark in consistency. But we have great team on board."
