2016 Buzios Sailing Week
3 wins from 4 races for Belda/Arndt

The pair opened with a second place score, before opening the door to victory with three back to back wins. Behind them, a points juggling act as four teams - Gustavo Abdulclech/Pietro Geronimi, Leonardo Lombardi/Rodrigo Luz, Carolina Boeckh/Daniela Luz and Martin Chao/Marco Peek - battled it out for second and third.

Going into the final race, Gustavo Abdulclech/Pietro Geronimi protected their points advantage and sailed a safe race to finish in 5th and claim second. The remaining three teams went into the final race, just 1 point apart, with Leonardo Lombardi/Rodrigo Luz doing enough with their second place finish to claim third overall.

Buzios Sailing Week was hosted at Iate Clube Armacao de Buzios from 26-29 May.

Looking forward to welcoming many of these teams to the 2016 420 World Championships, 15-23 July, in Sanremo, Italy,
