2 races on day 1 (11/14/2013) with winds ranging between 9 and 15 knots. "Gonzo" Costa Hoevel (ARG-3) took the first bullet of the competition beating fellow Argentinian Martin Miguel Berardo over the finish line. He was followed by hotshot Brazilian Master Paulo dos Reis then Nahoel Abram (ARG-1) with Spaniard Pablo Ania Barrachina in fifth.
Gonzo is really going to regret his OCS in Race 2 as he disappeared down the ranking. Martin Miguel Berardo became the overnight leader as he was first over the finish line in race 2 with Paulo dos Reis in second and Pablo Ania Barrachina in third reflecting their positions on the overall leaderboard.
First youth at the moment is Peruvian Alessio Botteri, first Grandmaster Brazilian Roberto Esteves Lima and first Junior, Brenno Francioli from Brazil is putting in a creditable performance, 19th overall out of 65 competitors - not bad!
