Day three dawned with the prospect of some breeze and some proper racing for the first time in the 2010 Rolex Farr 40 World Championship. Even so, those watching got more than expected as the racing captivated from the start. The wind continued to make life difficult for the Race Committee and the competitors as it swung about violently during the day, rarely refusing to settle from one direction for any length of time. The chessboard was active on the racecourse with boats making moves in all directions. Nerone (ITA) looked to heading into the final day with a scoreboard lead until an uncharacteristic crew error at the final leeward mark of the day saw her slip from third place to seventh, whilst Transfusion (AUS) pulled up into fifth from eighth. After an intense day of four races, Guido Belgiorno Nettis’ Transfusion on 21 points leads by two points from Massimo Mezzaroma and Alberto Signorini’s Nerone with Jim Richardson’ Barking Mad (USA) in third on 32 points.
