With seven out of the top 10 at the Bacardi Cup being Star world champions, Peter O'Leary and Robert O'Leary from Royal Cork Yacht Club were in good company when they finished 11th overall in Miami at the weekend. A second Irish Star keelboat from the Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire sailed by Max Treacy and Anthony Shanks were 18th overall in the 76–boat fleet.

Disappointingly, both Irish boats ended the regatta with a black flag disqualification in the final race, a penalty that denied the Cork Harbour brothers the chance of moving into the top ten overall.

  1. 1. Diego Negri / Sergio Lambertenghi, ITA, 14 points
    2. Robert Scheidt / Brian Fatih, BRA, 16
    3. Eivind Melleby / Joshua Revkin, NOR, 22
    4. Lars Grael / Samuel Goncalves, BRA, 24
