Formula 18 World Championship 2005
Hoek Van Holland, Rotterdam, Netherlands

France, the Netherlands and Great Britain lead the 141 strong fleet after day one of the 6th F18 World Championship held in Hoek van Holland, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Yesterday three races were completed under strong but perfect wind conditions (four to five Beaufort) for all four qualification groups. The French team of Jean François MOURNIAC and Franck CITEAU hold the lead with six points, closely followed by Mischa HEEMSKERK and Sander DE BOER (NED) and Andy WALSH and Ed BARNEY (GBR).

More than 60 competitors failed to notice the general recall flag in race three, and consequently only 12 boats turned back to restart. After long but patient hearings, the Jury decided not to give redress to all the 31 protestors.

Three more qualification races are due to be sailed today, in the built up to the gold and silver fleet for the finals starting on Wednesday 13 July.
