|BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA-(11-10-2004) Busch / Noceti / Futado (ARG 34) won the 1st Quilmes Mercosur Cup by only one point over the 2004 World Champion Warburg / Tufarolo / Smith (ARG 32) in the nicest day of competition at the Rio de la Plata with a wind increasing during the day until reaching 18 knots of wind. |
Two races were raced and both used the Olympic triangle course, where reaching action were spectacular and the fleet sailing really closer during the jibing were requiring a traffic light at the mark.
Noceti / Rocha / Guerrero (ARG 18) had an average day enough to maintain the third place over Gozzi / Naveira / Lasheras ( ARG 31) who finished fourth.
Bisi / Heinonen / Bisi finished 5th winning the club trophy for boats built before 75 just 5 points over the American team (USA 807) with Collins / Ezcurra / Muller, both teams and also Marreins / Ramayon / Blacksley (RSA 8) were able to finish at least one race at the top three using their old boats and sorting out all the difficulties these boats may present.
The prize ceremony had a second barbecue sponsored by Quilmes brewery and all sailors were already forecasting the next Argentine Championship to be held later in November in the same waters and hosted by the same Club Nautico San Isidro.
