Goodison holds a narrow lead over fellow Brit Rob Greenhalgh, who scored a 2, 3, 1.

Current Laser Gold medallist Tom Burton of Australia is also on good form at his first major Moth championship, making up the third spot on the podium with 1, 5, 2 finishes.

The Australian contingent are showing impressive form (in light wind so far) with Tom Slingsby, Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen all with top 5 results but only sailed two races.

Another Australian looking fast in the light was Queenslander, Matthew Chew who finished the day in sixth overall, two points behind former Moth world champion, Josh McKnight.

A huge fleet of Moths have already been practising on the lake over the last few days to get valuable time on the water to get to understand the vagaries of the local conditions.

150 boats entered the Italian Series regatta, split into just two groups. A total of six races are planned, three per day.

The Moth World Championship racing proper starts on Tuesday 25 July with two days of qualification races.
