You'd think that, having had only a few days of practice with new crews in borrowed boats, many of these teams would be flying by the seats of their pants, but Luna Rossa mainsil trimmer Paul Westlake and tactician Andy Horton said the allotted two-hour training sessions went off without a hitch. Teams like Emirates Team New Zealand, TeamOrigin, and Alinghi also looked ready to race. The Greek team, however, did not have such a smooth transition into this event. Having delayed the crew selection until less than 24 hours before their first race, they might have forgotten who was actually on the roster, as they left team member Dan Slater stranded on the media boat for two hours. After receiving the phone call, "We're on the water. Where are you?," Slater was reunited with his teammates, who were still trying to figure out where they had left they're "GRE" country code sail sticker (which they never found).
