On Friday in Cape Town, we had a fantastic start to the In Port Race – the start we’d prepared for with our Performance and Meteorology team – but things don’t always go to plan. A bad furl cost us time and the result we were looking for, but we’ve learnt a lot from our mistakes and are happy with the solid performance of the team. As Charlie said, “In a fleet this good, one mistake can snowball and send you from the top to the bottom of the leaderboard. We obviously showed we can do it, so we are happy with our performance overall.” BRING ON LEG 3!
