GIRLS CONTINUE TO HEADLINE AT 420 SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP
Onto race day 3 on 31 March at the 2018 420 South American Championships and the leaderboard is still controlled by Maria Victoria Montalvano and Paloma Gutierrez from Argentina after the day's two races.
Light winds again today, with the opening race of the day (race 7 of the series) in a light 7 knot easterly. Stunning race strategy from Montalvano/Gutierrez gave them the race win, their third of the series.
All change for the next race, as the breeze swung to the south-east and built to a more challenging 18 knots, Race victory to Leonardo Lombardi/Felipe Toledo, and a struggle in the breeze for Montalvano/Gutierrez, helped the boys team close the points gap to the leaders, but they are still 12 points behind. Third to Ramiro Cosentino/Martin Barletta from Argentina.
The twenty-nine boat fleet will wrap up racing on Sunday 1 April and the 2018 420 South American Champion will be crowned.
