Horton takes the lead

On day three of the Star class racing at the Bacardi Cup

Wednesday March 10th 2010, Author: Dan Weikel, Location: United States

Skipper Andy Horton and Crew James Lyne edged up from their fifth place yesterday in the standings to secure the top spot after the third day of Star Class sailing for the Trofeo Bacardi. Ireland's Peter O'Leary and Stephen Milne are up to second, while yesterday's leader, American Rick Merriman and Phil Trinter faded but still hold a solid third place with Brazilians Lars Grael with Ronald Seifort fourth and first day victors Augie Diaz and Bruno Prada fifth.

Wind conditions increased slightly later in the afternoon to about a 10 knot high with the fleet more spread out compared to yesterday's tight group.

"The breeze was light again today, but we're expecting the wind to become stronger later in the week with the weather," said Andy Horton. "Today, the real challenge was getting over to the wind, which was tough today, but we managed to spring out of jail and really get out there. We're trying to approach this like any big regatta by really staying focused and not being too risky. This is a strong fleet of competitors and you have be careful out there. The breeze is supposed to pick up a bit later this week and we're going to continue to try to do our best and see where we are at Saturday."

The day's sailing also included the start of the Viper 640 class competition for the Pan-American Championships at BACARDI Miami Sailing Week. The Viper 640 victory today went to Barry Parkin, who came out on top in the 21 vessel field with his crew John Logue and Sue Parkin. Viper 640 competition will continue until Saturday, 13 March.

Racing starts for the J/24, Melges 20, and Melges 24 classes tomorrow.
