Extremely shifty winds that increased from eight to twenty knots during the afternoon made racing difficult at the Audi Laser Radial World Championship 2012.
Both the starting line and race course had to be repositioned several times resulting in mixed results for the entire fleet which reflected the tricky conditions.
Cecilia Carranza Saroli from Argentina achieved the most consistent results with a fifth and a first place. In second place after two qualifying races is Tatiana Drozdovskaya from Belarus with a sixth and a second place. She is followed by Finland's Sari Multala who won the first race and placed eighth in the second.
Favourites Marit Bouwmeester (NED) and Gintare Scheidt (LTU) are in tenth and twelfth place respectively. 2011 ISAF Worlds Bronze medallist Paige Railey (USA) ended the races on her birthday in 30th place overall. Alison Young (GBR) won the blue fleet's second race but she finished 31st overall due to a heavy 39 points in the first race.
Leading the Under 21's is Marie Bolou from France with a two point lead over Svenja Weger (GER) and Oren Jacob (ISR), both with 26 points.
