Buenos Aires, Argentina

Race Three of the 2005 Star World Championship in beautiful Buenos Aires was sailed under sunny skies with winds from the east southeast between 9 and 11 knots. First round the first upwind mark were the British team of Iain PERCY and crew Steve MITCHELL, followed by the French Philippe PRESTI and crew Jean-Phillipe SALIOU.
The USA team Mark REYNOLDS and Phil TRINTER rounded third, the Brazilian teams Torben GRAEL and crew Marcelo FERREIRA in fourth position and Robert SCHEIDT and crew Bruno PRADA completed the top five.

Percy and Mitchell maintained their position rounding the first downwind mark with Scheidt and Prada catching up to round in second, and the French team of Rohart and Rambeau, winners of Race 2 in third position. True to form, Rohart and Rambeau had a good second upwind leg to round in second position while Scheidt and Prada captured first position around this mark. Percy and Mitchell lost on this leg to round in third position.

The second downwind leg was won by Scheidt and Prada, followed by Percy and Mitchell in second and Rohart and Rambeau in third position. Fourth around were the French Presti and Saliou and in fifth was the team of the Swedes Lööf and Ekström.
