Two races were held on day one: the first results confirm that Singapore is one of the strongest teams with Italy, who in this opening day of the Championships, confirmed with their ability their knowledge of the regatta course. In this the first phase there are many ties since the participants have been divided into four heats. The strongest were well focused as they achieved their first important points. Three different heats gave two clear wins for Dimitri Peroni of Malcesine, Italy and Singapore's Loh Jia Yi and Ko Yi Kun. They were followed by Scipio Houtman (NED) (2-3) and Liado Duran (ESP) (4-2).
Singapore dominates also in the girls with Han Bertha leading.

All the boats have on board a GSM-GPS locater which allows the regattas to be followed live, thanks to the collaboration with Trac Trac and Wind; in addition Fraglia Vela Riva's facebook page will have live coverage as the buoys are passed with videos and photos in real time.
"We couldn't have got off to a better start" commented Mauro Stanga, President of the organising club Fraglia Vela Riva "sun, wind, up to regulation regattas with helmsmen who are extremely prepared and comply with the rules both on water and land, giving us the best possible start to this event, inspiring all the organising staff who have been working round the clock these past few days, to offer the very best to our guests. We hope things continue in this way and that Lake Garda, Trentino maintains its classic wind conditions that have made it famous throughout the world."
Another two races are scheduled for Thursday.
