Race 8 Day 24

GREAT Britain - Simon Talbot

05 FEB 2014 - Race 8

Well what can I say, what a finish to Race 8A, yet again we match raced Henri Lloyd for the last 50 miles and at one point managed to get a couple of boat lengths ahead of them around 2 miles from the line, only for our spinnaker to collapse in their dirty air and allow them back into the lead which they managed to maintain despite our best efforts to roll them. So in the end, it was their day this time, well done to Henri Lloyd for what has been an incredibly tactical and testing race with a fantastic culmination, very challenging and very rewarding.
