Star Bacardi Cup Race 5 – Kusznierewicz and Prada score a quick win – Sailweb

Although they missed another race win, second place in Race 5 was enough for Mateusz Kusznierewicz of Poland and Bruno Prada of Brazil to wrap up the 2022 Star Bacardi Cup with one day to spare.

Danes Jørgen Schönherr and Markus Koy won Race 5, with Kusznierewicz and Prada in second and Norwegians Eivind Melleby and Joshua Revkin in third.

That gives Kusznierewicz and Prada victory with 12 points if they count their sixth-place finish away and skip Saturday’s final race.

This last race will therefore see a battle for the other two places on the podium between Eric Doyle and Payson Infelise, and Diego Negri and Sergio Lambertenghi. Irishmen Peter and Robert O’Leary need something special to get on the podium.

Britons Ed Wright and Alberto Ambrosini retired on Friday and sit ninth overall. Ante Razmilovic and Dave Martin (GBR 8443) with a 20th are 23rd overall.
