Celebrating its 90th anniversary, the Bacardi Cup has become a world-renowned event.

Tracing its roots back to 1920's Havana, Cuba, the regatta was conceived as a three day event with sailors competing for the Trofeo BACARDI as part of the Cup of Cuba's Mid-Winter Championship. In 1962, political unrest forced the Bacardi Cup to move from Havana to Coconut Grove, Florida, where it has since been hosted by the Coral Reef Yacht Club, the organizing authority for the BACARDI Cup. Heading into 2017, the Bacardi Cup continues to be the only Cuban-born sporting event to survive in the United States.

Bacardi CupMelleby henger med

To seilaser onsdag for å hente inn avlysningen første dag.

Det var perfekte forhold i Miami på Bacardi Cups tredje dag og arrangøren benyttet den stabile vinden på ca 14 knop fra øst-sør-øst til å ta igjen det tapte etter første dags avlysning. Starten ble dratt frem til kl 1100 og man fikk avviklet to fine seilaser.

For Evind Melleby som startet med 3. plass 1. dag, ble gårsdagen ikke like vellykket, men med 13. og 5. plass er nordmannen stadig med i tetbildet ettersom konkurransen mellom de 73 båtene er hard og heller ingen av konkurrentene er stabile i toppen. 

Franske Rohart/Ponsot leder regattaen med plasseringene 1, 10 og 3 og 14 poeng, mens Eivind Melleby/Joshua Revkin ligger på 5. plass sammenlagt med 21 poeng og plasseringene 3, 13 og 5. Opp til Mendelblatt/Liljedal på 2. plass skiller kun tre poeng.
