We are happy with how we have produced this result, we have tried in the last few days to understand our strengths and what needs to be improved, giving each night a concise look and trying to grow. We believe this last match has found our dignity. It is a pleasure to travel on a ready-made ship, which helps us to understand where we are and how to operate. We still have only a few days to prepare for the water, so it’s hard to take positions after the wind in extreme conditions, and it’s the direction to work next summer. ”
