Tornado European Championship 2010
Torbole, Italy

Day one of the 2010 Tornado European Championships provided the sailors with some challenging conditions. The famous Ora winds filled in from the South after a postponement and picked up to 30 knots towards the end of racing.
The race team gave the sailors three races packed with action, there were over 20 capsizes during the day but with no breakages.

ITA President and World Champion Roland Gaebler commented on the racing saying 'This really is the best of Lake Garda, rodeo sailing with the famous Ora winds. It was one of the hardest racing days for me from over the past ten years.'

The Greek team of Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigonis have taken an early lead with three wins from three races. They are followed by the current world champions the mixed team of Roland Gaebler and Nahid Gaebler who are six points behind. The results represent the wind conditions with over half of the fleet not starting the third and final race of the day.

Top five after three races
1 - Iordanis Pascalidis and Kostas Trigonis (GRE) - 3
2 - Roland Gaebler and Nahid Gaebler (GER) - 9
