It is unbelievable how Antoine stays at the top, especially in Fuerteventura. Just before this event we checked his record and he has won eleven times in the last twelve years! It is hard to say what his secret is. For me he won because he was the fastest. I had one good start in the final right on top of him and he just took metres on me like it was nothing! I knew I was not the fastest, I have great average speed but not good top speed; he was just so much faster! That was the reason he could dominate like this. He has the afterburner switch! I still have a few years to get one of those! He has twenty-four world titles, so he has the experience and the skills. At the end of the day he is an exceptionally good sailor.
