“We were also third country, losing out to GBR 1, 2 and 3, and USA 1,2, and 3. The racing was close, with some brilliant races with the other teams in Gold Fleet.

“The conditions over here have been brilliant with strong wind on Monday and Tuesday, with cut down sails being needed on the latter, and lighter wind on Wednesday and Thursday.

“We had aimed to make it into the Gold fleet, so to not only make it into this group, but to finish in seventh and beat the Irish and Australian teams, surpassed our expectations and we are incredibly pleased with this result.”
