As far as the TP52's are concerned, RÀN scratched some points thanks to her win today.

After another win today British Maxi Alegre clears out from the rest of the fleet and Mapfre PalmaVela 2011 winner with eight points advantage over second classified Xavier Mecoy's Highland Fling XI. The Mona co-flagged Maxi was second and third was British Jethou of Sir Peter Odgen, equally placed in the overall classification after five races.

RÀN of Swedish boat owner Niklas Zennstrom moves up to second place after crossing the finish line two minutes ahead of Guillermo Parada's Audi Azzurra Sailing Team, in spite of the Italo-Argentinians rounding first the windward mark. The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda flagged brand new TP52 Azzurra remains on the lead with and advantage of six points upon also new build RÀN, but with three races to go the regatta hasn't been decided yet.
