It's Good to be the King!

"When we saw the wind drop. By two o'clock we knew it was not going to happen but it was just a case of keeping on concentrating until the end." Said Bouwe Bekking, the former Movistar skipper, "This morning I had just told the guys we should go out today and enjoy it no matter what happened. It is a surprise for us to be here because we were so late with the boat. When you only have two days sailing before you come here and some of the crew only saw the boat here for the first time, then you do not really expect to win the first regatta, so I just wanted us to enjoy it."

"We have a bloody nice owner and he deserves this. The King called him and sent his best to all of us, he is very happy."
