Quote From Torben Grael


Quote From Torben Grael

At the end of today's race Torben Grael, tactician on board Luna Rossa, said: "It was a difficult race today. The wind was very shifty and we had rain and poor visibility. We favoured the left and played the shifts accordingly. OneWorld had a good right shift in the first beat and they were able to take the lead. Then in the second run we had an opportunity but we could not capitalize on it because the wind shifted too much on our side and we ended up covering more distance. The break came in the final windward leg when OneWorld separated and we were able to play the left with a favourable shift, taking the lead, reaching the lay line and rounding the mark ahead of them. In the last run we stayed close to them defending our advantage. The boats are quite even in speed, we have to take these races one by one and concentrate on doing our best. I think it will be a very close series."
