Amongst the women, titleholder VAN ACKER was quick out of the blocks and with a first and a third is leading the fleet after the first day. Alison YOUNG (GBR) started her regatta well too and with a second and fourth she is second overall. In third position Gea BARBIC (CRO) has 1 point more than YOUNG.
With four Dutch sailors in the first five positions the Dutch men had a terrific start. Due to the wind these strong men were faster than most others. Douwe BROEKENS and Eduardo VAN VIANEN lead on three points (both a first and a second). Mathieu FREI (CAL) is in third place with a fourth and a second. This promises intense racing in the men's fleet.
The weather forecast for Monday is the same as for today: strong winds and high waves: a beautiful sailing day.
