“I don’t think we have any secrets. The conditions are tricky out there and I think we have had a little bit of luck. We have had solid starts and good speeds by the guys. At the beginning of the event we got the inconsistencies out of the way. And so we just try to go through the lessons we learned from them. We keep learning.

"And Quantum have really showed that consistency really pays, as they are fond of saying ‘just keep chipping away’. It is working for them and we are starting to try and adopt that. We have solid group of guys, everyone is playing their part and trust each other. There are a lot of good teams here, and some are having their problems. But with a change of conditions due tomorrow then it could show some different form from different teams.”

“We were lucky to come from a bad position there to get back into it. We got a little tangled up at the start and Terry and Doug did a great job getting us back into it. It was not easy. We made a big gain on the first beat and then it all evaporated.

"We were back where we started. But the goal is always just to pass the next boat. That is all you can do. Between Terry and I looking around we found something, but then the key is that guys are always, always making sure the boat is going fast, that is the key.”

“We just keep at it. Don’t give up. Don’t get frustrated. Each and every person onboard is working. Every wave downwind we are working. We just never give up.”
