Star South American Championship - Brazil dominated the Championship, claiming all three of the podium places at Mar del Plata, Argentina.

Lars Grael and Ronald Seifert, who are ranked number eight in the world, won the gold medal after two second place finishes on the final day. Their point tally of 11 gave them a comprehensive six point win over Alessandro Pascolato and Henry Boening.

Gastao Brun and Gustavo Kunze enjoyed a strong final day finishing third and first in the final two races. They leapfrogged Alberto Zanetti and Nicolas Rosas (ARG) to clinch the bronze medal.

The last day of the championship was very different to the previous two with light winds and big waves. The difficult conditions meant a lot of strategic sailing in both races.

In the seventh race of the championship Grael chose the safest path, along with Gastao Brun. But it was Pascolato who rounded the weather mark in front after a risky upwind leg.

Grael did not give up but it was Pascolato who finished ahead of his compatriots and the chasing Argentineans.

In the final race of the championship Brun sailed with a lot of confidence knowing a good performance would hand him the bronze medal. Who won the race and his nearest rival for the spot, Zanetti, finished in 16th and out of the medals.

The Star South American Championship 2011 combined all weather conditions with the experienced Grael claiming a deserved gold.
