The ONLYRacing Team have made a strong start to the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

We ended day one with four wins from five races and are currently fourth overall, behind three crews who won all of their races. 

Lu provided the commentary for the press today -
"We had great conditions on the water today with a gusty 10 to 18 knots for racing. Four wins and a loss is a solid start to the regatta so we’re pretty happy with where we’re at. The conditions were very volatile and really shifty today and you couldn’t miss a beat so to come out of it with four wins was good. We had a good race against Genny Tulloch of America where we were both over at the start and had to return to the line. Tulloch then got a penalty for not being on the course side and trying to get a port and starboard so it was a really positive race for us.  We’ve got four more races scheduled for tomorrow and the plan is to build from today’s effort and we are looking forward to some tight racing.
