The Delta Lloyd regatta, fifth event on the ISAF Sailing World Cup circuit
is following the trend of the previous European events, with a windy opening
day with up to 30knots of breeze :)
The strong North-Easterly provided for excellent racing and thrill in all classes.In the absence of class favourites, - most now training in Weymouth in preparation for the Sail for Gold Regatta - 36 women are participating in the RS:X. From the nine Chinese windsurfers on the starting line, five entered the top ten after the first two races, claimed by Li Ling. Yuki Sunaga (JAP) is in second position overall and Mayaan Davidovich (ISR) third.
The men division is also missing most of the top actors, training in Weymouth before Sail For Gold, however, there are 14 different countries in the top 15. JP Tobin (NZL) and Dorian van Rijsselberge (NED) shared the victories in first and second position overall
