"We made one error and that's what happens," Outteridge said. "You can't win everything and for every winner there is a loser. We knew someone was going to walk away unhappy. It's a shame it's us. But that's sport and we will just get ready for next season."
"It's a bit different than most sailing competitions, isn't it?" said Outteridge, 33, an Australian who has won Olympic gold and silver medals and is an America's Cup veteran. "Usually you build a lead and the pressure is not always on that last race. It's a different system here and we're looking forward to it. This is the first time in my career there has been a race that makes a huge difference. I can't wait for it."
