Yngling Open World Championship
Brunnen, Switzerland

Dutch sailors dominated the first day of the Yngling Open World Championship with only a Swedish team for company in the top six places.
An early breeze arrived at Lake Lucerne blowing from 7-10 knots staying for around three hours.

During this time two perfect races were sailed with competitors from the Netherlands taking first and second on both occasion followed by a strong Swedish team.

Maareten Jamin, Jasp Smolders and Menno Berens (NED) took the opening race win followed by a fourth and sit second overall. The second race win went the way of Tom Otte, Arjen Kort and Floor Vries (NED) who sit fourth on seven points.

Remaining consistent with two seconds and leading on four points is Jan Haven Hidde, Don van Arem and Anke van Werf (NED) whilst with two third places the Swedish team of Mattias Dahlstrom, Mathias Lantz and Jesper Stalheim sit third.

After two perfect races the winds started to get unsteady and the Race Officer took the decision not to run a third race on the opening day.

Similar conditions are expected on the third day of the championship.
