Sailing World Championships - Day 1

Brits make the best of a difficult day in Aarhus

In the Finn, both fleets (90 sailors split into two fleets of 45) managed one race, and the first was won by the Brazilian favourite, Jorge Zarif, who has dominated the 2018 season.

Britain's Hector Simpson had an impressive race crossing the finish line in fourth.

In the second Finn flight, Croatia’s Josip Olujic, was more of an outside winner, but leading from start to finish.

Britain's Ben Cornish was fifth and Ed Wright 12th.

In the men's 470 the first flight race was won by the Sweden's Anton Dahlberg and Frederik Bergström and the second by the Greek pair, Panagiotis Mantis and Pavlos Kagialis.

Martin Wrigley and James Taylor finished the day in the highest GBR overall position with a third and tied on points with Aussies Mathew Belcher and William Ryan.

In the same 470 flight as Wrigley and Taylor, Luke Patience and Chris Grube were seventh.

In the women's 470, where they sailed as one fleet completing two races, Camille Lecointre and her new crew, Aloise Retornaz (2,6) of France lead.

Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre (9,14) finished the day in seventh place. Amy Seabright and Anna Carpenter (18,12) in 12th place.
