Mendelblatt, Prada win day 3 at Bacardi Cup

Mark Mendelblatt, the 2005 Bacardi Cup champion and America's Cup tactician, and crew Bruno Prada of Brazil finished first on day three of the Bacardi Cup star class regatta on Biscayne Bay on Tuesday.
The win moved them up six slots to third overall.
Bermuda's Peter Bromby and crew Magnus Liljedahl, who were in the top five in a fleet of 62 boats for the entire race, took second place and maintained first place overall after three of six races. Americans Andy MacDonald and Brian Fatih finished third.
"All the credit for our win today goes to Bruno," said Mendelblatt. "He called the right off the start and he fixed our rig for speed adjustment on the first run."
Italians Lucio Boggi and crew Manuele LaPorta, the race two winners, finished ninth and remained in sixth place overall.
