We are really happy of today's victory. With this GP we won all the Grand Prix we participated in and we are really proud of it. Our main goal is to win the Youth Foiling Gold Cup which will be held in Cagliari in a couple of weeks. This event was supposed to be a training but as soon as we went to the top of the ranking we tried stay in the front of the other teams even trying a new configuration of the crew.

Today we started with two girls on board which meant that the boat was taking off really early than usual but we saw that when the wind was getting stronger than 8/8,5 knots we need to swap. So, anyone on the team has to be ready to race, this is another key for us.

Ettore Botticini, Young Azzurra

We just changed the configuration on the boat; we moved the two girls to the foil controller role to have Federico Colaninno on the gennaker and on the main sail to have more power and this is working really well. Basically, we are playing with the team members' positions. Our target is to beat Team Dutch Sail that did a great job in Limone.

Ganga Bruni, Young Azzurra

We came here to discover a new boat and learn new tricks. It has been a really good experience. Every day we had different conditions and we understood a lot. This is a quite unique little boat, It has not been easy at all times but certainly we had fun. We could catch up in a couple of races once we found the right conditions.

We got some little and helpful tips from the 69F Shore Team. They helped us through the week and we reached good goals.

The boat is quite different from the SailGP ones being a monohull, the whole system is quite special as well but I would say that it is really unique in the way the boat responds and how you handle it. It is really great to learn how this new boat works, try something different and develop our skills. We are really happy to be here!

Phil Robertson, CHINAone Ningbo

I think the boat is more fun with a strong breeze. The last races have been thrilling and we had a lot of fun. That's why we came here!
