Day 3 proved to be a pivotal day for team in terms of results and developments moving into the last day where all will be decided at the 2014 Monsoon Cup. The team started with a nail bitting finish against the Singapore team to sail behind all race and overtake on the final jibe to the finish. We then came on shore due to no wind and went out for one more race. This race was a sea of emotion for the team as we made a lot of unforced errors causing us to lose a very winnable race against the fired up local Malaysian team.
We had a lot of heated moments on the boat and the loss caused a few members to get understandably frustrated at the silly errors. We had a long discussion at lunch and re structured a few mechanics as well as confirming the various roles. We lost the next race and finally re grouped to win the last 3 races. We ended the day on 4 wins and 3 losses. The team needs to recharge the batteries after a very long day and come out all guns blazing tomorrow on the final and penultimate day.
