Margot leaves for the course at 2:30 also. Her race is at 4:40 and about 5:10 she is hoping to be off the water, through NBC if they do any interviews, to briefly greet us in an area called "Kiss and Cry" or, as I initially remembered it "Weep and greet." So we will hopefully meet her there and be able to give her a quick hug before she is whisked away to isolation through Tuesday's race.
If her boat wins, the will only race on Sunday in the final. If they don't win, the will race on Tuesday to win a spot in the finals.
The competition is very tough. We have seen great teams from New Zealand, Great Britain, Australia, and of course China. Doubtless there are others we haven't seen in terms of the quad. But we've got a really strong boat, which has MARGOT in it!
So, more later and pictures of course. Still very grey days here and raining today, lightly up to now.
