470 North American Championship 2006
Miami, Florida, USA

After day one of the ISAF Grade C1 470 North American Championship was blown out in Miami, Florida, USA, racing got underway on Sunday. Two small but high quality fleets completed four races on Biscayne Bay with the number one team in the ISAF World Sailing Rankings Ingrid PETITJEAN and Nadege DOUROUX (FRA) proving the stars of day one.

PETITJEAN and DOROUX scored bullets in races one and three, although an eighth in race four, means they are only leading on countback from the more consistent American pairing of Amanda CLARK and Sarah MERGENTHALER. The Austrian team of Sylvia VOGL and Carolina FLATSCHER lie third, whilst World Champions Marclein DE KONING and Lobke BERKHOUT (NED) got their campaign off to a disappointing start and lie seventh at the end of day one.

Over in the men's Brits Nic ASHER and Elliot WILLIS lead after 1,2,2,4 finishes for the day. Behind them lie the USA's Mikee ANDERSON and David HUGHES with Italians Gabrio ZANDONA and Andrea TRANI in third.

The 470 North Americans is taking place as part of the Winter Circuit leading up to the ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Miami OCR from 22-27 January.
