Robertson, at 25 the second youngest skipper in the AC World Series fleet, was enthused by the team’s performance last week. China Team scored its first match racing victory on the America’s Cup World Series circuit and they counted a 5th as their top finish in the fleet racing championship. Robertson said the crew work was much improved.
“We won our first match race and had a 5th, 7th and 8th in the fleet racing, which is fantastic for the team,” said Robertson. “It shows how much we’ve improved over the past two weeks. In between the two events we worked hard in the gym and we’ve managed to put in a few more training sessions. Now we’re competitive with a little more momentum behind us, and we’re really happy with how it’s all gone.”
