We have been waiting on the results of as protest between Norway and France which just concluded. The result which will put us in 3rd place – now midway through The Games. We had an exceptional first race today, finishing 2nd , just behind Games leader, Norway. Our 2nd race was on pace to be approximately a 5th, but an error on our part landed us in 8th place – unfortunate, but that is why they make “tomorrows”!
Most exciting, however, albeit in business or sport, is when you assemble a Team, with the intention of the sum becoming bigger than the individual parts. It is always a magical moment when it happens – and no one can ever predict the timing of this moment or phase. Well, Tom, Brad and I are “gelling” right now at these Games! Our consistency of sailing with powerful confidence in the top echelon of the fleet, and sailing like it was choreographed for destiny, can be attributed to “peaking” as a true unit right now! So, you can expect some good news going forward over the next several days.
