Taking on the Kiwis

A big match to start the event in Sardinia, against Emirates Team New Zealand. It's in Flight 2, but with the first flight under postponement, the start time is drifting back into the early afternoon now. Updates are on the event website,

Here's what the guys had to say as they left the dock on the transfer RIB this morning.

Rosco: "It’s good to get into it with what is basically the top team... they’re a really consistent group and always perform well so we’ll be looking forward to a good race. It should be fun – nothing like getting into it straight away!"
Cheese: "I'm looking forward to it – it’s going to be a good race."
JK: "We’re ready to race. It looks pretty light today so it’s one of those unpredictable days – it’s going to be a tricky one."
The 18th man for the race against the Kiwis is Massimo Mele, the General Manager of BMW Sardinia.
