|Nicolas HUGUET scored two
In the red fleet, Nick DEMPSEY (GBR) scored an impressive opening win, building on a solid start in winds just under ten knots, 'The first race was right on the edge of planing or not planing,' he explained, 'so I knew that as long as we could get planing most of the way up the first beat we´d be looking quite good, and that´s pretty much what we did. I planed three-quarters of the way up that first beat, got quite a nice position on the fleet and then just consolidated that.' That start left DEMPSEY upfront along with Max WOJCIK (POL), with the Brit getting the best of their tussle to take first place. However it was WOJCIK who finished the day the stronger, with a bullet in the day´s final race leaving him second overall, just a point behind HUGUET. The day´s other race went to Fabrice HASSEN (FRA) ahead of Joeri VAN DIJK (NED) and WOJCIK.
