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.

During a training session with his A-Cat multihull on Lake Geneva last Thursday, Charles Favre (54) was overturned in a gust. Rescue and first aid was present within a short time but the reanimation was sadly not successfull.
Two-times Olympian on the 470 and Tornado, multiple Swiss Champion in a number of dinghy, keelboat and multihull classes, 'Carlito' was one of the most successful Swiss sailors of the past decades. His passion for sail racing has been legendary since his time as youth sailor, and all who knew him will never forget the good time with him on the water and ashore. The Swiss sailing sport has lost one of its very important personalities. Deepest condolences, above all to his family.
