Early leader is Mic Sig Kos Mohr of Costa Rica who won two of his fight races, tied on 12 points with Marco Gradoni of Italy with a 2, 1, 5, 4, and third Roy Levy of Israel with 4, 14, 1, 5.

Best British competitor is William Pank in 7th after a 7, 20, 7, 1.

Conditions on day 1 were marked by a strong tide and a sudden rainstorm that closed the day. A short-lived tropical rainstorm moved in on the Green fleet.

With winds whipping up past 20 knots for five minutes, eight sailors were able to get over the finish line in heavy rain before the the wind and rain stopped. The rest of the fleet drifted backwards.

Then twenty minutes later, the race was declared over. Only twenty one sailors were able to finish before the tide, which one coach described as “like a river”, took control of the situation.

Day 2 had white caps offshore of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club that heralded winds of 15 to 18 knots that lasted through the day.

One more day of qualifying races are scheduled before sailors will be split into gold, silver and bronze fleets based on rankings.
