Gonzo is really going to regret his OCS in Race 2 as he disappeared down the ranking.  Martin Miguel Berardo became the overnight leader as he was first over the finish line in race 2 with Paulo dos Reis in second and Pablo Ania Barrachina in third reflecting their positions on the overall leaderboard.

First youth at the moment is Peruvian Alessio Botteri, first Grandmaster Brazilian Roberto Esteves Lima and first Junior, Brenno Francioli from Brazil is putting in a creditable performance, 19th overall out of 65 competitors – not bad!
