The fleet, divided into six divisions to give three successive starts, had to come to terms with thermal effects and subtle shifts but ocean sailors seemed to have had no difficulty in adapting. Elijah SIMMONS (BER), Anthony ALKINS (TRI) and Affizie Muhammed AZRUL (MAS) took bullets in the race one, but then struggled in the later races to fall out of the top ten overall.
China's Jianan WU leads at the end of the day one with finishes of 2,8,1 putting him two points clear at the top of the leaderboard. Tina LUTZ (GER) follows in second place after scoring a second place and a bullet in races two and three. Nicklas DACKHAMMER (SWE) is a further three points back in third place.
