Whew! What a sprint finish. To be honest, I had no idea which beep was for our boat until about 20minutes after the race was over. We ended up coming third to the Netherlands and New Zealand. I think we can definitely get a couple more seconds, and it felt really good to get those race jitters out. Tomorrow we race all the same boats.
At first, we were a little disappointed with our placing, but we found some areas of the race where we can gain some more speed and this race was definitely a solid first race for our crew.
Bring on tomorrow! Time to get some stretching and active recovery in.
