Spithill: "Mate, it was all on the table. We got behind but we stuck our heads down. It was very impressive and it gives us a lot of confidence for tomorrow."
Spithill: "[Ben Ainslee] just made a great call to split right there. We took a huge gain there and, I'll tell you what, our afterguard is working really well at the moment."
Spithill: "Do what we have been doing. Study hard. It gives us confidence. The boat is going fantastic and the boys want it more than anything. Bring on tomorrow."
"It's the most exciting day of all of our lives and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else."
Spithill on tomorrow's conditions: "We are up for anything. The boat is going great. Any conditions for us."
