Right behind them with 4 points total is the Brazilian team of Claudio Biekarck, Gunner Ficker and Marcelo Batista da Silva with a 3, 1. In third, another Brazilian team of Thomas Sumner, Felipe Brito and Fillipe Gil sailed well with a 2, 4 today to finish the day with 6 points. Rounding out the top 5 is the Argentina team of Alejandro Cloos, Carlos de Mare and Julian de Mare with 13 points and Chilian Team of Felipe Robles, Pablo Lorca and Andres Guevara with 15 points.

The International Masters Championship is sailed concurrently with the South American Championship but is scored seperately.
