Black Swan Racing: Over and Out in Russia

The quarter-final stage of the regatta was cut from the programme due to delays throughout the event. Unfortunately this left us a couple of wins short of progressing further.

"This has been a frustrating event. Doing so little sailing over 5 days was very difficult, especially for our team because every time we got into the boat we improved so much. Personally I enjoyed doing the main sheet and being involved with the tactics during the event it was a great experience. Given the chance to sail quarter finals I think we would have been a real force. Keith has been starting very well so we would have been a difficult opponent." Jakob Gustafsson, Black Swan Racing.
