“Tomorrow we just need to race well. I think all the boats are close enough, especially Platoon and Luna Rossa, that we just need to sail well, and then along the race we can figure it out. But with two races that can happen tomorrow its a lot of points, and in this fleet you cant dare to be covering. 
Today, I like to race, and I never look at the points.

"Now, yes, because tomorrow is the last day and we have to look ahead and sail well. Obviously I looked at the points this week, you take your risks and rewards, but its difficult to sail against two boats that are so good as well as the whole fleet so you get in trouble if you start thinking about it too much.”

“Great racing out there today, three races, light air, so a lot of changes and changing places, so it was pretty exciting racing. I haven’t really looked at the points yet but I’ve heard because a lot of people are telling me that we’re tied on points for second (with Azzurra) and Luna Rossa is pretty close behind as well (for the overall season), so it’s going to be an exciting day tomorrow.

"I don’t know yet what the strategy is for tomorrow, we’re still decompressing and need to debrief today. Tomorrow is a different day and I know it’s a different weather scenario tomorrow, we’ve been having these Southeasterlies and tomorrow will be more Northeast, so it’ll be a different type of day, so we’ll see.”
