Ian William commented on China Team overall performance. “We came here to the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series as the only team with no training and that put us on the back foot for a bit. But we improved with every race and once into Round Robin 2 we got the chance, through sailing the easier teams first to stay one step ahead. We have done what we came to do and that was to create a spring board for the team to go out and get sponsorship to take the next steps. We assembled a great team for this regatta many of whom have extensive AC experience and they were able to assist me in understanding the capabilities of the boats. Overall, this series has been truly fantastic especially for creating the opportunity for smaller teams to get on board state of the art boats and race.”
