It was a really challenging race against the Americans today,' said Price. 'We started to windward of her with good speed and led up to the top mark. 'It was a three lap race so boat handling was really important in incredibly shifty, variable conditions with the pressure going up and down,' she said.
'We managed to get a penalty on her for tacking too close on the first work and then found ourselves behind at the bottom mark. 'Once Genny completed her penalty we managed to get back in touch and rolled her on the line to win by one second, it ended up being the closest race we’ve had so far this regatta.'
