Team New Zealand's Dean Barker and Bertrand Pace led their Kiwi crews into the semi-finals.
Both Barker and Pace defeated their Danish opponents, Jesper Radich and Jes Gram-Hansen, respectively, two races to zero.
Joining the Kiwi couple were Prada Challenge's Gavin Brady who similarly swept past GBR Challenge's Andy Green.
The only pairing needing three matches to determine a victor featured Magnus Holmberg of Team StoraEnso and the Victory Challenge against Rod Davis of Prada. Holmberg and crew dropped the first match to the Italian team before rallying to take two in a row, winning the deciding match by one minute and twelve seconds and denying Prada a chance to send two teams on to the next round.
