DAVID HOWLETT (GBR)
Of course we backed Ben for a third gold in the Finn, but as much as wanting the result for Ainslie we wanted to be able to direct more credit to his loyal coach David Howlett. Always a brilliant technical mind in one-designs, with his own track record in the Finn to prove it, Howlett found the perfect ‘client’ with Ainslie whose dedication to doing the best possible job with the machinery available is peerless.
FREDDY LOOF AND MAX SALMINEN (SWE)
It’s been a long road to a gold medal for Freddy Loof, whose nemesis in the Finns at Sydney 2000, Iain Percy, followed him into the Star with similar results. Two world championship wins were finally joined by that elusive gold in a breathtaking medal race in Weymouth. ‘We just have to try to win and then hope,’ said Loof heading out. That strategy worked out pretty well but only in the race’s final inches.
