Although the day began very cloudy and with almost no wind, the first of the two races started approximately at 12:20. With the sea very rough, the Australians were the ones that made the most of it and cut the finish line front. The Germans Wolfgang Hunger (past 470 world champion) and Holveg Jess, followed by the Danish team Per Larsen and Uffe Andersen.
