With the mens/mixed fleet split into three groups for qualification races prior to the finals and the women sailing a straight series, the top ranked sailors lead after first day.
After a two hour delay the wind finally came in enough to allow the Race Committee to start yesterday's racing.

With the men and mixed crews split into three fleets and the women in one fleet, the racing was held on two courses - one close to Izola and theother one by Debeli rtic. The wind built up to 15 knots in the early afternoon, enabling the three races for men/mixed and two races for the women to be completed.

The unofficial results for men and mixed crew show the Rogers/Glanfeld (GBR) leading in the first group, followed by the Conte-De la Fuente (ARG) and the Australian brothers Belcher. The best crew from the host country, Slovenia, Copi-Pegan lie tenth.

The current European Champions Braslavets-Matvienko (UKR) lead the second group, followed by Martinez-Cantero (ESP) and the French brothers Bonnaud.

Whilst the third group, racing on the same course as the women crews, sees the current top ranked pairing of Kosmatopoulos-Trigonis (GRE) leading the fleet improving on each race to take a 4th, 2nd and 1st. Behind them lie the Finnish crew Posti-Hongisto came second and Hojland-Rahbaek (DEN).

The women had two races, which sees Gibson-Clark (GBR) lead, followed by the American's Maxwell-Kratzing and the Swiss team Duerig-Meier. The best placed Slovenian crew, after the retirement of the Orel twins are Dekleva-Maucec in 39th place.
