Quotes from the news wire:
That was one for the fans, a pretty awesome race. It was great to take part in ... lots of lead changes, neck and neck all the way to the line. Full credit to the Luna Rossa guys for pushing hard, we had a few issues ... we were missing one of the key settings for the power of the boat. The guys did an awesome job getting us round the track in one piece and getting the win.
You don’t want to see that happen to anyone. I think everyone is OK which is the primary concern, we go out there and race hard against each other but this is a sporting contest and we want everyone to be safe and we want everyone to be racing... I hope they are able to sort things out and get back on track.
The Briton came to my home, we sat for about two hours and talked about it and actually I just said I don't care about the money, I just want to do this. I told The Briton there and then, i think this is a historic opportunity to do something that hasn't been done in 164 years, to try and win this cup( for Britain).
