“Unfortunately I had an incident in the very first race and got disqualified,” said Alexander at the conclusion of the event. “That was the hardest point in the regatta and I had to bounce back from that. Using your drop up in the first race isn’t ideal, so every other race mattered after that. From there I just chipped away every day. It was a really close, hard fought regatta, with all sorts of breeze – we sailed under every direction of the compass. I haven’t quite got my head around it, but I’m really excited to win!
