Bromby claims third place finish

Bermuda's Peter Bromby and Lee White finished third in yesterday's race on day two of the Bacardi Cup in Miami.

Bromby, a three-time Bacardi champion, and crew White are tied in 12th position overall with 22 points.

Yesterday's 9.5 nautical mile race was won by Guillame Florent and Pascal Rambeau (France), making for three different winners in as many races so far in the series.

Sweden's Fredrik Lööf and Max Salmiren continued their consistent form, adding a second-place finish to Tuesday's win.

With the midpoint of the regatta reached, the overall standings continue to reflect a close contest at the top of the fleet. Sweden's Fredrik Lööf and Max Salmiren have moved into the overall lead with three points, Guillaume Florent and Pascal Rambeau (France) are now second with four points.

Early series leaders Eivind Melleby and Petter Morland Pedersen (Norway) dropped two places and stand third overall with five points and Peter O'Leary and David Burones (Ireland) are fourth with seven points.

Only one point separates the teams standing fifth through 11th: Mateusz Kusznierewicz and Dominik Zycki (Poland) have 12 points; New Zealand's Hamish Pepper and Craig Monk remain sixth with 13 points; Maciej Grabowski and Lukasz Lesinski (Poland) dropped two places to seventh but retain 14 points.

Racing resumes today and continues through Saturday.
