We started the World Championships with a solid day on the water with four wins and no losses on the scorecard. It was light winds and quite a variable day here. 

Our first race of the day against Le Berre was abandoned due to a race committee error, which in turn gave us a good chance to warm up for the day. The four races against Mulder, Bossard, Kjellberg and Le Berre were great for us to continue our systems onboard, especially after our past two weeks of solid training in Weymouth.

Tomorrow is going to be similar conditions, and so it will be a good chance to finish the last three races of the group, against some top competitors before the gold group is announced after racing. The format is slightly different to the World Cups, where the top four from each group go through to a gold group round robin and the top four teams will then compete in the semi finals.
