The Etchells Worlds, hosted by the San Francisco Yacht Club, was delayed on shore to allow for the wind to build before two races were completed.

James Badenach (1,15) of Hong Kong, won the opening race ahead of Seamus McHugh (2,26) SUI with Marvin Beckmann (3, 18) USA in third place.

In the second race Dirk Kneulman (8,1) of Bermuda finished ahead of Britain's Robert Elliott sailing with Stuart Childerley, Tom Forrester-Coles, with Steve Benjamin (33,3) USA taking third place.

Only the two leaders managed to stay in single figures in both races, Kneulman on nine points with a two point lead over Elliott with Marty Kaye (4,11) on 15 points in third place.
