In his first OK Dinghy event, Lars Johan Brodtkorb from Norway won both his opening heats to take the overall lead on Wednesday.

Charlie Cumbley (2,3) from Britain is second and Andre Budzien (2,4) from Germany is third.

Other race wins went to Thomas Hansson-Mild (1,9) from Sweden and Anders Andersen (12,1) from Denmark.

Defending champion Bo Petersen (2,12) of Denmark is seventh overall.

The huge fleet has been split into four groups, with two starts of two groups, which alternate during the week before a gold/silver split on the final day.

Both starts in the first race ended up being black flagged with a few boats pulled out.

Second overall Cumbley summed up his day,

“We finally got some sunshine, a light breeze off the land with 30-40 degree shifts and two races. I got a second and a fourth, so pleased to get away unscathed."

"It was one of those days where you can pick up some monster scores so it’s nice to come away with a couple of counters.”

Racing continues on Thursday with three races scheduled as part of the 10 race series, which concludes on Saturday.
