The chairman of the US sailing team is convinced that committing to training at the 2012 Olympic venue in Weymouth will produce their desired results.
Dean Brenner refuses to discuss a medal target for his team at either the ongoing Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, or the London Games which get underway in under two months' time.
But the chairman of the US sailing programme does believe his finest sailors are on target for what they hope to achieve, helped by spending plenty of time on the Weymouth waters.
"We have no specific medal targets," he said. "Each of our classes are on their own final preparation schedule and our goal is to just put the finishing touches on the work we have been doing here (at Sail for Gold).
"Obviously we would like to do as well as we can, but what everybody is going to remember is how we do in July and August and that is our focus.
"We feel like Team USA is doing really well in a number of places and we are on schedule for the performances that we'd hope for.
"The US sailing team, the Sperry Top-siders, has been training for years here, and we are very pleased with our progress.
"We have been coming here a great deal since 2009, and we have spent more time in this Olympic venue than any previous Games for a US team when the Games have been outside the US.
"The courses are a little different, and you have to know them but the racing in this area is fantastic."
In particular at Sail for Gold - the final major meet before the Olympic Games - Brenner will have been pleased with the form of finn class sailor Zach Railey, who has pushed three-time British gold-medallist Ben Ainslie, and his compatriot Giles Scott all the way.
And he has taken delight in the performances of women's match racer Anna Tunnicliffe and her team, Molly Vandemoer and Debbie Capozzi.
"I think the results over the last few years for our teams speak for themselves," he said.
"There are a number of classes where the US sailing team has been doing very well, and there are a number of places we think we could perform well at the Games.
"Anna Tunnicliffe, Molly Vandemoer and Debbie Capozzi are our match racers for the Games this summer and they have had a spectacular last 18 months.
"They are here this week working hard and they have got their worlds in a couple of weeks.
"They are ranked number one in the world, they are the reigning world champions, they have won a number of events this year they are obviously a team to keep your eye on."
