Gybe Talkin’ Day 25

Hot

Richard Clarke

Team BDA coach echoes sentiment of many on the island when he explained how he wants the team to continue. Comes down to cash, though.

Not

What they said

— Grant Dalton, Team New Zealand boss

Man overboard

Too confident?

Murray Jones, the Team NZ performance coach, said: “They’ve been sailing like this for months and years really, so I can’t see them making any major changes this week.” That’s either ironclad belief or overconfidence. We’ll see.
