'Soling racing on final day of South American Championship'
The first race course number two with a double triangle and a windward/leeward sausage in between saw the Solings flying and crews working really hard to control the boats.
The race was a close fight from the start for the title between the three first in the overall positions DOFOUR team with WARBURG, CELEDONI and SMITH in a tie with PASTAACIUTTA team with BUSCH, TUFAROLO, FELDTMANN and from Brazil the VIPAL-RAGE team with NEHM, RIBEIRO, RIBEIRO.
The victory came to the VIPAL-RAGE team complicating more the situation for the leaders followed by DOFOUR and PASTAACIUTTA. At the same race the 4th and 5th position put USA 807 with COLLINS, EZCURRA, MORILLO in a better position to fight against SHOSELIN team with DESPONTIN, NOCETI, SASSO both finished the one in 4th and 5th.
The second race a windward/leeward course with even more wind again was dominated by VIPAL-RAGE team and again DOFOUR team in second and PASTA ACIUTTA team in third. NEXT with NOTTEBOHM, TUMULTY, CARISSIMI team finishing 4th and with a bad race for both USA807 and SHOSELIN team now joined the fight for the 4th place.
The third race another windward/leeward saw a big wind decrease but kept the gusts making it very difficult to race.
To the left USA807 and SHOSELIN team took the lead of the competition, but at the end the race went to SHOSELIN team followed by USA807 and in a close battle behind them the 2006 South American Champions the DOFOUR team with Gustavo Warburg, Hernan CELEDONI and Maximo SMITH who in the last run managed to pass by one length the VIPAL-RAGE team with George NEHM, Marcos PINTO RIBEIRO and Lucio PINTO RIBEIRO. PASTA ACIUTTA with Martin BUSCH, Marcelo TUFAROLO and Maximo FELDTMANN kept the third and SHOSELIN team with Pablo DESPONTIN, Pablo NOCETI and Ezequiel SASSO by only one point kept the 4th overall over USA807 with Matias COLLINS, Andres EZCURRA, Fernando M.
