Light winds on first day of Worlds, but still flying .

Glenn Ashby did good consistent business today, by scoring a first and a second on his DNA .
Bit Lucky that Nathan Outteridge who was leading the first race got stuck in big wind hole  and fell back to 12th ..

Interesting to see that the boats are already foiling downwind in this light breeze . Not that this is faster per definition , showing the good consistent second and third overall by experienced sailors Scott Anderson and Andrew Landenberger.

Blair Tuke flying

Glenn is sailing the DNA with J boards, Nathan sailing the Exploder with bigger, more extreme J boards.  He got  the boat up quicker then the others, allthough looking pretty unstable. But who else can manage an unstable boat better then him, being worldchampion in both 49ers and Moths ...

Mischa  got a shitty first day: sailing the first race into a hole too, after lying 5th and capsizing the second by avoiding a port / starboard crash downwind

Very interesting to see how things develop the coming days, hoping for a bit more stable breeze
