“Still we are learning every day. We are trying to invent the wheel. And soon I hope we will have a good wheel to be competitive for this season, for the worlds, and for next season. Because here in this fleet when you sleep everyone makes a jump forwards. We are pleased to have a day like this because it means we have made a jump forwards and in the last period we have done something better. I hope we have another good day like this soon.

"We are working so hard. I cannot tell you on what. It is very important to maintain the secrets. It is most important that we have more data, to have more ideas to have something better. It is an advantage to the others if I tell you what we have been doing.”

“We came away with six points for the day and that is good. We are thrilled. It seems to suit us starting on the pin. But you can tell from the posture of the other tacticians that none of us really knew what side was going to work today. And so it was going to be a bit of a mystery to start with. It really was more of a boatspeed day.

"We are really fine tuning on the navigation side. Nacho Postigo really is the wizard of Palma Bay and his layline calls are getting to be super accurate. It is a big help when we line up like that.”

“Things have not been going very well. We have been struggling with starts which have not been great, and tactical calls which were not perfect. I hope it will get better in the next days. But the speed of the boat is good. It is hard right now being at the bottom. It has not been our best performance for sure.”
