"As soon as something doesn't work, it makes it very hard," said Outteridge, who also is from Australia. "It's like asking a race car driver to drive a car where the brakes aren't working. The last race we lost the display software that tells us the time to the start, time to boundaries, shows a diagram of where you are on the course, so we raced the last race blind. Considering all that happened today, to still come second here and still pushing hard is great. Yesterday was the highlight for our team so far."
"We know it's still only halfway, and we have to do the job tomorrow, but all the training and hard work is paying off, which feels great," said Outteridge, an Australian who has won Olympic gold and silver medals and is an America's Cup veteran.
