The 700 participating boats at this year's Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik have been welcomed by cold and windy weather. Gusty and shifty winds between 12 and 18 kn, together with the short and steep Ijsselmeer chop made sailing rough and challenging .... too much for the 'modern' Olympic classes !
With the top teams absent, there are some new names on top of the 470s. Chang-Yu Kim/Wang hoo Kim KOR are on rank one after the first day, ahead of Molund/Östling SWE and Xammar/Herp ESP. A surprise team is also on top of the 470 women with Niki Blässar/Mikaela Wulf FIN. Ainsworth/Weguelin GBR and Seabright/Carpenter GBR are the first persuers.
Abandonments and damages in the skiff classes, especially the 49erFX. Annemiek Bekkering/Anette Duetz NED and Tessa Lloyd/Caitlin Elks AUS lead at equal points ahead of the tied Paris Henken/Helena Scutt USA and Lili Sebesi/Julie Bossard FRA. Two teams at equal points also on top of the 49ers with Hansen/Porebski NZL and Turner/...AUS.
Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA have taken the lead in the Nacra 17 and their advance on the chasers Saxton/Diamond GBR is already 14 points after three races. Bundock/Curtis AUS are 3rd. Experienced with the special conditions on his home waters, Pieter-Jan Postma NED is on the first place in the Finns, but Arkadij Kistanov RUS and Josh Junior NZL are not far behind.
Windsurfing is dominted by the Polish team, as mostly in fresher winds. Pawel Tarnowski POL is first in the RS:X men with three race wins, and in the RS:X women, Zofia Noceti-Klepacka POL has a 7 points' lead on Lilian de Geus NED.

After almost a week of speed racing, the fleet has massively lost momentum during the past night, influenced by the Azores anticyclone. This situation offered the all-female 'SCA' team the opportunity for a bypass attack deviating the high pressure zone northwards. It seems that this option is about to be paying as the backlog of over 100 miles has been split in half up to now. Samantha Davies GBR and her team, 59 miles back, are currently over 5 miles faster than the rest of the fleet, led by 'Brunel' (Bouwe Bekking NED) 0,3 miles ahead of 'Mapfre' (Iker Martinez ESP).
