Juan Ignacio Maegli (GUA): 'I’m trying to learn as much as I can about the conditions and the venue. Next year is going to be a key event for me. The way funding works in Guatemala means as soon as you’re qualified to the Olympic Games you get a lot more funding. It’s going to be really important to qualify next year, especially with it being two years before the Olympic Games'.

'I haven’t been sailing much but the big swell and light winds make it very complicated so there’s a lot to focus on but normally I like these conditions.'

'Everybody’s coming from the Europeans which was a pretty big event so I think people are taking this a bit easier. It’s a bit mellow but everyone is learning a lot from racing and it’s interesting to learn whilst racing.'

Bryony Shaw (GBR):'It was hard work out there. You had to keep working and keep the momentum going. Having a good lead in the first race, I had an Israeli girl breathing down my neck but managed to hold her off and then I had a really good match race up the last beat of the second race with the French girl.

'It was good to hold both of those girls off who are very, very good in that kind of wind.

'It is very similar to Rio, having been out there this summer, you really do need to get a handle on the current out there. It’s quite tricky, and also the swells – you can get some big rolling swells coming through even through the harbour entrance, so it’s a good place to practice Santander 2014
