Peter Burling and Blair Tuke are the hunters rather than the hunted for once.

They're second overall after the opening day of 49er racing at the South American sailing championships in Rio.

Burling and Tuke claimed a seventh and eighth before finishing the day with a bullet to be one point behind the British leaders.
