The three Swiss teams were not at ease with the difficult wind situation on day 1 of the 470 Europeans, as the World Championship worthy fleets from all continents did not allow the smallest tactical or technical errors.
The best-ranked for the moment are Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI with the day ranks 10, 13 and 3 in the last heat - with 18 kn the windiest one - bringing them on rank 16 of the overall 470 women's rankings.
The men's fleet started first in the morning in a light 7-10 kn breeze.
