    The ten boat fleet headed for the race course under idyllic Caribbean skies with a 10 knot easterly breeze that swung to the south east after race four of the series.

    Race four and Estate Master (AUS) improved from their first mark rounding position to move through the fleet and cross the line ahead of overnight leader Goombay Smash (USA). Fellow American father and son team of Helmut and Evan Jahn’s Flash Gordon 6 (USA), finished race four in third.

    The final race of the day and regatta and the race committee had to reconfigure the race course and eventually sent the fleet on a two mile windward leeward race. Estate Master (AUS) again came out on top after eight miles of racing with Alex Roepers’ Plenty (USA) finishing up second and Flash Gordon 6 (USA) repeating their result from the previous race to finish in third.

    The teams will now be preparing for the reason why they are here at Casa de Campo, the 2010 Rolex Farr 40 World Championship. Defending Rolex Farr 40 World Champion Jim Richardson and his Barking Mad team are aiming to make it two in a row and four times World Champions which would be a first for the Farr 40 class.
