Beginning with 12 knots puffing to 14 the first race started after a recall and a Z flag. It was a windward/leeward cource with the wind shifting enough to the right that a course change was needed. The Brazilians were dominating all the way around.
Race two was up to 15, puffs to18 and this time two recalls and a z flag and an Olympic course. Bruno/Dante lead at the weather mark, stretching it to 20 seconds by the reaching mark and never looked back.
The last race today was the same but only one recall and z flag. This time it was Paradeda that stretched a lead to the reach mark to 20 seconds and finished first with a comfortable lead. One more day of racing and it looks close!
