In second place overall after today's racing are Italy Yellow, made up of the two Giacomelli Sport boat belonging to Alberto Signorini and Stefano Spangaro, while in third place are the Spanish team, with Bribon and Telefonica Movistar, still awaiting the arrival of His Highness the King of Spain today.

Yesterdays racing consisted of two, 8 mile windward/leeward courses in a 15 to 17 knot south easterly wind which tested. Both the Farr 40 and IMS classes started on the same line.

The first race was dominated by the IMS boat Giacomelli Sport belonging to Stefano Spangaro, a Grand Soleil 44, which won both the first race and the second, as did the German boat Nela in the Farr 40 class.

Racing continues today with a further two windward/leeward courses.
