If you have been monitoring our results and especially if you have been watching our racing you will have noticed that we have had some ups as well as some “holy crap!” moments when we lost races. There is no question about it an America’s Cup team is an extremely complex entity. I know I know how to manage from a perspective of being on the boat and a part of the sailing team and pushing for wins by grinding and sweating…. but it is completely different and it is more difficult to know how to coach, cajole, demand or plead with a team so that they believe in themselves. It is a day-to-day learning process for all of us.
I look for the little things and this picture shows me what I am looking for – satisfaction at a tough job very well done – ahead, behind, penalties, no penalties, and ahead again – and done well AS A TEAM. Yes! We believe!
Now for tomorrow…. 🙂
