Although we are one spot from qualifying, and with this being a crucial day, our boys are still brimming with confidence and courage. In fact they have good reason to; if you take the results up to now Malta is 17th nation out of the 32 nations represented in this 49er World Championship. If this were to have been the only qualifying event for Olympics 2012 then we would be with the qualifying nations. The reason is that Malta is currently beating nations that had already qualified in Perth in December. That’s how close they are!!!
Anyway we can’t be looking back, we have to look forward and encourage our team to find the inspiration to achieve what we know they can. The weather for Day 3 is going to be a bit fresher than yesterday with the breeze forecast to be 13-15 knots and this could well be a good thing for our boys who are trained for the stronger stuff. They are focussed and with some help from the wind Gods and support from their Malta and overseas fans, they can do it.
