2016 Laser World Champion Nick Thompson is hoping to return to Olympic competition in Tokyo after placing sixth at the Rio Games, Nick is calling tactics on 42 South. “I have had a tiny bit of racing on FAST40+ before, but this is my first real experience and they are amazing – awesome boats,” commented Nick. “It’s good close racing, I am used to boats of similar speed, where it’s all very tight, and that’s what you get in this fleet. The shifts and pressure today were everything; 25 degree wind shifts and 15-22 knots made it a fruity day, which was good fun. These boats are so like dingies; very responsive to the tiller and twitchy downwind, it’s one of the few yachts were you need to tack for every shift. If you get the opportunity to have a blast in a FAST40+, I say take it on.”

19-Year-old Rebecca Coles, eighth at this year’s 420 World Championship was racing on Steve Cowie’s Zephyr for the first time. “That was awesome the fleet is so tight, super fast and super fun, it was pretty punishing; one mistake and you are down the pan but there were opportunities to get back up there, as it was very shifty today!” commented Rebecca. “I started sailing with the RYA dinghy pathways racing optimist and then 420s, and in the past couple of years I have been getting into yachts. I did my first Fastnet this year and I have been working on Zephyr as a nipper, and today I finally got my chance to sail with the team.” Rebecca has been doing offside trim with North Sails expert Jeremy Smart. “It has been great to learn from him, learning how to set the jib up, and asking questions to learn off the back the experience. It is a big learning curve but I am getting loads from the education.”
