And they have carried that form into the Manly club championship, winning last Saturday's fourth heat to keep the pressure on series leader Fire Stopping.
Fluid started the club championship in disastrous fashion, failing to finish the first heat due to gear damage.
But they quickly recovered to post two seconds and a first to sit behind Fire Stopping on the overall pointscore.
"Unfortunately our rudder broke in the first race otherwise we would be even closer to Fire Stopping," Bowen said.
"We get to drop the DNF (Did Not Finish) but we cannot afford another poor performance.
"Fire Stopping haven't broken gear or had a bad race and at present they sit in the box seat.
"But anything can happen in sailing and we will be pushing all the way."
