“The team performance is way up,” Malcolm Page, Chief of U.S. Olympic Sailing, said. “It's been a lot of hard work to get here, and I remember a significant moment four or five months ago when we sat down in Aarhus [Denmark] and we realized our performance wasn't going as well as expected — on average. We sat down with the coaches and brainstormed over what needed to be done to achieve that. Our big takeaway from that was to build confidence. We know our athletes have the talent, but they don't always have that confidence to do it at the world championship level. We always said that 2019 had to be our year to achieve that. It's only just begun, and we've had a great week. We didn't have these results [last year], but we're still far from our potential."
