Optimist World Championship 2005
Lake Silvaplana, Engadin, Switzerland

The winds which had so far produced three superb days of racing at the Optimist World Championship on Lake Silvaplana, Switzerland yesterday provided a frustrating day for the race officer at the start of the Team Racing Championship.
Having waited for the southerly Majola wind until 1400 hours local time he attempted to start in a light northerly, only to experience a 180 degree windshift during the first race as the Majola finally arrived. The resulting light and fickle wind may have contributed to some startling upsets.

New Zealand beat reigning champions Poland and both the 14th and 15th seeds overcame more fancied opponents.

The team racing will continue today, the scheduled reserve day.
