The breeze remained steady allowing the race committee to get three races off. The first race of the day was a general recall due to a huge right shift at the start causing major commotion on the line. After adjustments to the starting line, race one was underway with John Taylor's Ninkasi punching the line and getting out early. Taylor lead at the top mark and was able to extend for a huge win followed by Marc Hollerbach on Fu, and Kiss round out the top three.

Race two of the day began with a quick, all clear start with Taylor again having a great start out of the gate. Robert Hughes' Heartbreaker lead at the top mark. At the gate the course was shortened but Heartbreaker's crew of Brain Janney and Morgan Reeser were able to remain on the line a finish in open water.

The overall Bacardi Miami Sailing Week Winner, Michael solidified his win by taking the bullet in the final race of the day and of the series. Congratulations to Bacio for a job well done. Rob Wilber on Cinghiale found their groove in the last race coming up huge with a second place finish. Corinthian team Valkyrie owned by Andy Rasdal was able to get a good start and remained up at the top of the fleet finishing the final race of the day with an impressive third place finish.

The overall Corinthian winner for the Audi Melges 20 Miami Winter series goes to Jon Messenger's Black Sheep with crew members Jermey Edwards and Mark Goodyear. This boat competed in all three events winning the overall in the second event and holding strong to take the overall for the series.
