Brazil's SANTA CRUZ driving Bruschetta (3-3-8-1-7-7-13 -4) is still being chased by three American entries - in second place, Bogus, driven by Chris SNOW (8-4-5-2-36-6-14-9), Mark HILLMAN'S WIP in third (18-1-25-4-2-3-9-19) and in fourth place, Mike INGHAM (7-2-16-11-8-2-15-16) helming Brain Cramp.
The big move came from the middle of the fleet. Great Britain's Inmarsat Hedgehog driven by SOUTHWORTH and MCLAUGHLIN (50-12-15-9-1-17-7-1) had their second bullet of the week, moving them up to fifth place, nudging Argentina's team of GRIMALDI and CONTESSI (16-5-3-12-25-5-2-20) on Tag Heuer into sixth.
Host country Mexico had its best finish today when Julian FERNANDEZ sailing Crocs (15-36-DQ-38-44-28-3-35) held onto third place throughout Race One. He crossed the line after first place Sebago driven by Chile's Dag Von APPEN (26-35-21-8-21-71-1-24) closely followed by second place finisher Tag Heuer.
