After three races of the Melges 24 European Championship the Gill Race Team lead by five points.

Consistency was the name of the game on the opening day in Hyeres.

Lenny of Tonu Toniste (Estonia) looked to be running away with the first day . . .

They won the opening race and followed that with a second place, but then blew-up in race 3 with a 29, to finish the day in seventh overall.

Step forward the British, Gill Race team (helm Geoff Carveth) who did not win any races but put together a steady 4, 3, 3, scoreline to lead overall.

Winner of race 2 was Blow-Slam Sailing of Peder Nergaard NOR, but when combined with 20 and 31 place finishes put them down in 13th overall.

Marrakech Express of Matto Ivaldi ITA, managed things a bit better, winning race 3 and with scores of 9 and 12 finished fifth overall.
