Lake Garda turned on its best conditions for the 2 races each sailed in four fleets. In 14-knot winds, all but one of the eight starts got away first time. As the afternoon progressed, the thermal wind started to fade but there was still an adequate 8 knots to finish the last fleet of the day.
As in the previous week for the Open Championship, Croatia is already proving to be the country to beat, with its youth sailors taking over from the senior sailors at the top of the leader board. Tonci STIPANOVIC scored a perfect 1,1 while his compatriot Tonko KUZMANIC was only one place behind with a 1,2. Kuzmanic was so far in front of his fleet that some thought that he had sailed the wrong course as he sailed back through the fleet.
