"Let's not talk about this"

A day to forget for Team Aqua
Team Aqua hasn’t had a fruitful day today on the opening of the Dubai Gold Cup. “Let’s not talk about this”, said Chris Bake back on the pontoon. However with a big smile on his face: tomorrow’s another day. After a nice third place in the opening regatta, Team Aqua missed its start in the second race and finishing the race in eighth. The third race was going well until the team got a penalty during the first downwind leg. Spinnaker down, 360°, spinnaker up: the other boats were gone!
