This is what we`ve heard today in Palma.
Terry Hutchinson, tactician of Bella Mente in Mallorca Sotheby's IRC class:
"It is all on tomorrow, so I think if we win and Cannonball come second then we beat them on countback and so it’s good. We control our own destiny, right? If it was said at the start that that is what you had to do to win the regatta tomorrow, you would take it."
Pete Greenhalgh, trimmer of Oman Air in GC32 class:
“For tomorrow, we need to look closely at the forecast because it looks very flaky so we need to be careful as we might not get the 5 races in so we are going to stick like to Alinghi. We have a 3-point lead at the moment so we need to work it to our favour”.
Chris Larson, tactician of Earlybird in ClubSwan 50 class:
"We are sailing pretty well. We are a relatively new team this year who have only sailed a few regattas together. We are only now getting a handle on the rig tune of the boat and we are getting better and better every day. We had a long chat on the way out saying basically now anyone can win this regatta and we have to get mentally tough and just focus on our jobs going around the course and everybody did their jobs well and we had a good day. We lost one point to Cuordileone but they are sailing super well."
