After completing three races with 80 degree temps, warm water and a easterly 12-15 knots of breeze, it looks like the finale of the Winter Series may be the best yet. By winning two races John Kilroy/Bill Hardesty USA are leading the rankings of the 33-boat-fleet from 6 nations. See the complete results and read the full report.

The four OneDesign classes of the Miami Sailing Week ended the event yesterday with two races each.
In the largest fleet, the J/70s with 46 boats, the victory was - as in the Starboats - Brazilian. The multiple J/24 World Champion Pedro Santa Cruz BRA and his team climbed on top on the last day relegating Julian Fernandez MEX and Carlo Alberini ITA on the ranks 2 and 3. For the first time in the history of this young class, the podium remained without US teams. Clear winner in the Swedish M32 catamarans, participating in Miami for the first time, was the matchracer Taylor Canfield ISV, as his main opponent Rasmus Kostner DEN did not sail on the last day.

Very light winds awaited the Star fleet yesterday and race 5 was sailed in a 4 to 5 kn southeast wind. Lull patches and big shifts made racing difficult and the fleet was stretched over a long distance in the long race. The race winners Arthur Anosov/Andrey Shafranuk USA won with an advantage of over 5 minutes ! The Brazilians continued dominating the fleet with 4 teams in the top 6 ! Jorge Zarif/Bruno Prada BRA sailed their discard result (rank 33) but stay on top of the overall rankings before the last races of today. 3 points behind are Lars Grael/Samuel Goncalves BRA and with a backlog of 7 points, the solidly sailing Mark Reynolds/Magnus Liljedahl USA still have an option on the Bacardi victory.
