Lee Korzits (ISR), 2011 and 2012 world champion, enjoyed a great start to her London 2012 campaign with a win in the opening race in the Women's RS:X windsurfing class in winds up to 17 knots on Tuesday.
A third in the second race puts her in second after the first day of racing in the class. Korzits rounded the first mark in the opening race just behind Marina Alabau (ESP) but by mark two was ahead and went on to win by 18 seconds.

Olga Maslivets (UKR), competing at her fourth Olympic Games, took third. In the second race, sailed in 15 knots of wind, Alabau led at the first mark from Maslivets and Korzits.
