With a consistent 8 knots wind, the 70+ fleet eventually started under a black flag that removed World Champion and third placed Augie Diaz and Bruno Prada USA.

At the weather mark Eric Doyle and Payson Infelise USA rounded first followed by Peter Vessella and Phil Trinter USA.

But by the second gate for the second upwind leg John MacCausland and Roger Cheer USA had the lead.

With a drag race to the finish line Charlie Buckingham and Austin Sperry USA took the gun followed by MacCausland and Cheer with Rohart and Ponsot recovering to take third, up from the mid 20’s earlier.

“Our boat was perfectly set-up today, clean lines and we kept boat moving nicely.” Said Buckingham. “We pointed well, we were just fast!” added Sperry.

Overall standings: Mendelblatt/Liljedah are leading with 13 points followed by Rohart/Ponsot with 15, Szabo/Natucci with 18 and Grael/Goncalves 20 points.
