Star South American Championship
Mar del Plata, Argentina

Brazil's Alessandro Pascolato and Henry Raul Boening had an excellent opening day at the Star South American Championship after they won the opening two races.
Fellow Brazilian's Lars Grael and Ronald Seifert finished behind the leaders twice whilst Argentines Alberto Zanetti and Nicolas Rosas finished 3-4 to take third place after the opening day at Mar del Plata, Argentina.

Pascolato sailed extremely well on the opening day to take a commanding lead whilst #8 in the world Grael had to settle with two second place finishes.

During the second race Grael came close to defeating Pascolato but he chose the wrong side at the second upwind which ultimately cost him the victory.

During the day there were several DNF's due to broken masts and sails. The sailors started repairing their damaged boats early in the afternoon in preparation for the second day of racing.

Top 5 after two races:

1. Alessandro Pascolato and Paul Henry Boening (BRA) 1-1 2points
2. Lars Grael and Ronald Seifert (BRA) 2-2 4points
3. Alberto Zanetti and Nicolas Rosas (ARG) 3-4 7points
4. Gustavo Warburg and Maximo Smith (ARG) 6-3 9points
5. Gastao Brun and Gustavo Kunze (BRA) 4-5 9points
