We keep reminding ourselves that we don't need to win this leg where perhaps other boats do, and so we mustn't allow ourselves to be pressured into pushing the boat too hard. (Quote by - Mike Sanderson)

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Give him a fishing lesson and he'll sit in a boat drinking beer every weekend. (Quote by - Alex Blackwell)

All of them excelled at managing the boat. But ultimately, the race is all about managing people. (Quote by - Simon Walker)

Fed up with the conditions, members of the crew began to lose faith in their strategy. One crew member complained that he had wasted three years of his life training for the race. The solution was to reset the goal. I called the crew up on deck, and we discussed what had happened, 'We're in the eleventh position,' I told them. 'We can't think about winning. We're going to set ourselves new targets to beat as many boats as we can, one boat at a time.'. (Quote by - Simon Walker)
