Misjudging the length of course and failing to recover saw the Olympic and world champions finish 22nd today

Olympic and world champions Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson say that despite a nightmare start to their 2011 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta campaign, all is not lost.

Blaming a “school boy error”, Percy says they intend to fight back from their bad start after misjudging the length of the course and failing to recover.

After finishing 22nd in their opening race of the week, Olympian Simpson reveals how frustrating it is to watch their rivals do so well.
