Matthew Belcher/Will Ryan AUS remained on top of the 470 men thanks to a race win, but the best of the day (ranks 2/3) Sofian Bouvet/Jérémie Mion FRA reduced the backlog to one points.

Peter Burling/Blair Tuke NZL and Marcus Hansen/John Porebski NZL follow on the ranks 2 and 3. Finishing 2/2/1, Charlotte Dobson/Sophie Ainsworth GBR climbed on top of the 49ersFX, 3 points ahead of Martine Grael/Kahena Kunze BRA. Ida-Marie Baad/Marie Thusgard DEN are 3rd. Ioannis Mitakis GRE defended the first place in the Finns with just one point in front of Pieter-Jan Postma NED (ranks 1 and 2) who considerable reduced the gap.

Tuesday, April 22, 2014   
Perfect conditions prevailed yesterday on the first day of the last 2014 ISAF Worldcup event with sun and an initial 12 kn easterly breeze, increasing to 18 kn during the day. All classes sailed 2-3 races.
The Olympic Champions Matthew Belcher/Will Ryan AUS won two of the three races in the 470 men and lead overall ahead of Barreiros/Curbelo ESP and Dahlberg/Bergström SWE. Anne Haeger/Briana Provancha USA are on top of the 470 women after two heats, followed by the Olympic Champions Jo Aleh/Polly Powrie NZL and Sophie Weguelin/Eilidh MyIntyre GBR. Two wins in three races also for Peter Burling/Blair Tuke NZL in the 49ers ahead of Dylan Fletcher/Alan Sign GBR and Diego Botin/Pablo Turredo ESP. The Olympic Champions Nathan Outteridge/Iain Jensen AUS are 4th for the moment. And also in the 49ersFX, the favorites are already ruling the show: Martine Grael/Kahena Kunze BRA lead in front of Ida Baad-Nielsen/Marie Thusgaard DEN and Charlotte Dobson/Sophie Ainsworth GBR. Rather surprising is the interims lead of Ioannis Mitakis GRE in the Finns, followed by Milan Vujasinovic CRO and Caleb Paine USA. To be noted, that the strong GBR Finns do not compete. A dominating first day had Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA finishing 2/1/1 in the Nacra 17. Pippa Wilson/John Gimson GBR and Ben Saxton/Hannah Diamond GBR follow on the places 2 and 3. Even three bullets went to Piotr Myszka POL in the RS:X-men-windsurfers. Toni Wilhelm GER and Dorian Van Rijsselberge NED follow at equal points on rank 2. Leading in the RS:X-women-windsurfers is Natalia Kosinska NZL ahead of Maia Dziarnowska POL and Jiahui Wu CHN.
