QUOTES:
 
Tough day in an offshore breeze. We fought hard and hung in there. More wind forecasted for tomorrow.” – Annie Haeger, 470
 
“We had pretty light winds with a little bit of swell, so everybody’s pretty much going the same speed. Little mistakes cost a lot.” – Charlie Buckingham, Laser
 
“Last year things started to come together. Now I’m actually really racing, as opposed to focusing on certain sections of the race, or focusing on smaller technical things. I think I’ve taken a big jump forwards, and I’m really happy.” – Farrah Hall, RS:X
