From Switzerland's punchy start line antics to Canada's pay back against the Spanish, we round up five racing moments you might have missed from Cádiz.

Switzerland get Black Flagged

It was another tricky event for Switzerland, which got off to a terrible start in the first fleet race, earning a Black Flag and immediate disqualification. The punishment was doled out after the Swiss barged in at the bottom of the start line, forcing ROCKWOOL DEN to avoid a collision.

Canada execute Saint-Tropez revenge on Spain

After picking up a devastating penalty in Saint-Tropez for hitting Spain, Canada took the opportunity to land a penalty back onto the home favorites in fleet racing. The incident occurred on the fourth leg of the second fleet race and saw Canada turn towards the right mark at the last moment, catching Spain off guard. The Spanish hit the race mark in their efforts to avoid Canada, causing damage to their F50.

Close call between France, Canada and Emirates GBR

There were plenty of close calls in Cádiz as the 10-strong F50 fleet went head to head on one of the smallest courses yet. One memorable incident saw Emirates GBR, France and Canada battle it out on the approach to the finish line, resulting in France picking up a penalty and finishing last.

Emirates GBR bar New Zealand from the Final

New Zealand was within reach of the three-boat Final - only needing to beat the United States on points in the fifth fleet race. But a crucial error saw the Kiwis trapped by Emirates GBR, allowing the Americans the cross the finish line first and ultimately win the entire event.

The U.S. steal the win

The U.S. had a terrible start to the three-boat shootout, picking up a pre-start penalty and crossing the line last behind ROCKWOOL DEN and Australia. But the decision to jibe away early on the first downwind leg saw the Americans stay in pressure and keep foiling, while their rivals hit light airs and fell off the foils. This one move decided the outcome of the race, allowing teh U.S. to scoop its first victory of Season 4.
