Race Two was sailed in a fresh force 3 and after some tight racing Maria Agustina TORRE & Maria del ROSAR TORRE (ARG) took the bullet. Second place went to their team mates Mercedes TRAVASCIO & Maria Aime CALABRESE with Jan SPEELMAN and Wouter De MUNCK from Belgium taking third.
Day two of the World Championships belonged to James WADE and Katie BARR (GBR). Sailing in a Force 2 with a slight chop to the sea they won both of the races to be placed second overall in the event and looking good for the lead with the discard kicking in after the next race. Behind Wade and Barr in Race 3 was Anne-Sophie BLIJ and Mathieu SMIDT and Maria Agustina TORRE & Maria del ROSAR TORRE (ARG) in second and third respectively and in Race 4 it was a two - three for the Argentina teams of Manuel BOLOGNA and Javier Felipe SANTAOLALLA (ARG) and Franco GREGGI and Maria Eugenia Jasson HARDIE.
Day Three saw the Argentinian and British teams again showing their dominance, taking a bullet each with Franco GREGGI and Maria Eugenia Jasson HARDIE (ARG) in Race 5 and Jodie GREEN and Stevie GREEN (GBR) in Race 6.
Overall the points are tight and there is everything to play for in the next five races scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Maria Agustina TORRE & Maria del ROSAR TORRE (ARG) lead on 24 points equal to Anne-Sophie BLIJ and Mathieu SMIDT of Belgium. Two points behind and the only team to score two bullets so far is James WADE and Katie BARR of Great Britain. Consistency will surely play a crucial hand in who takes home the title.
