No wind and no racing on the opening day, but 30 kn plus on the morning after, delaying the first starts until the afternoon, when the breeze was somewhat lighter. Both Groups sailed two races, and while the experienced Nacra-17 teams handled the situation with routine, there was chaos back in the fleets with collisions, capsizes and equipment failures.
Finishing 1 and 2 in their Groups, the defending champions Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA as well as Vittorio Bissaro/Silvia Sicouri ITA share the lead after the first two heats. No surprise also Jason Waterhouse/Lisa Darmanin AUS on rank 3 just one point behind, and Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI (2nd and 3rd) on the 4th position, confirming their top results of the 2015 season.
