Outstanding performance by Felipe Monje Escolar, Real Club Nautico de Tenerife, in Laser Radial, followed by Viktorija Andrulyte who took the lead during the first two tests of the day but, in the latter, lost the lead. Third is currently the winner of the Miami Sailing World Cup, the Greek Vasileia Karachaliou, who although had a bad start with a sixth in the first leg, but managed to climb positions in the last two tests sailed today.
A competition that has been very close, specially among the sailors who occupy the top positions.
