• Strategist Hannah Mills said the team “really stepped up” on the second day of racing

  • New Driver Giles Scott said Sydney was “a nice building block” ahead of the Christchurch event next month

Hannah Mills said the KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix was a “rollercoaster weekend” for the Emirates Great Britain SailGP Team. Mills, the team’s Strategist, said it was a difficult start to the event for Emirates GBR, but the crew “really stepped up” on the second day of racing. After struggling to secure good starts on Saturday, Emirates GBR improved on day two and finished the event in seventh place, while home team Australia was victorious, claiming their first event win of Season 4.

Giles Scott said the Sydney event “felt like a nice building block” for Emirates GBR ahead of the next SailGP Event in Christchurch next month. Scott, who took over the Driver position from Sir Ben Ainslie last month, said the team managed to get back in the fight on the second day of racing.
