…Goose!

 …Goose!


No they didn’t! Though it doesn’t look it, apparently there was enough
damage to force Tau to drop out and MM withdrew after finishing the race.
Wouldn’t you do you circles after fouling this blatantly and hope for
the best as opposed to dropping out later? whatever, this fantastic on
the spot photography from Ian
Roman
. Oh yeah, Matador
now leads
the event heading into the last day. And remember how dominant
Quantum racing was? Read what skipper Terry Hutchinson has to say to see
how fast fortunes change in this brutal fleet:

“Its disappointing. The last race is particularly painful because
the guys are working their tails off and everyone is putting in 101% .
We haven’t sailed this boat in these conditions a lot, I think I
have to look at our technique, re-evaluate our sails and setup looking
at Matador and Artemis very fast downwind. We have to evaluate all we
are doing and continuing our game rate on an upwards curve. It’s
a test of our will, we’ve had some knocks in the past and we bounced
back, so we have to take some knocks now we will get up swinging!”
