We didn’t expect this, but also we left no stone unturned in practice so that we can give our best. I am astonished, and can’t really believe that we have accomplished it.”

Peter Askew also commented, “Really special, outstanding”. Both I and my brother and all the teams of wizard gave us tough competition, so to begin the year with a good victory and part and parcel of our commitment to the series of ocean race of Transatlantic, is just amazing” Askew also confirmed that the upcoming schedule for competition of wizard will also include the race of Transatlantic, the middle sea race of Rolex, and the Fastnet race of the Rolex.
