With two bullets and a third place finish in the RS:X Men's
Fleet, World #6 Przemyslaw Miarczynski (POL) has got the
jump on the 44-board fleet on the opening day of
Kieler-Woche, the final ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta in
Goyard faded in Races 2 and 3 finishing tenth in both and ends the opening day down in fifth place. Meanwhile Wilhelm is in second on seven points and, Miarczynski's compatriot Michal Majewski is third on 11 points.
Like Miarczynski, Amanda Ng (SIN) also recorded double bullets on the opening day in the RS:X Women's Fleet . However she blew R2 finishing 19th and slipped down the leader board leaving top place to another Polish sailor in the form of Agata Brygola.
Brygola was the most consistent sailor in Kiel with a card of 4-2-4 to lead Moana Delle (GER) by three points and Jessica Crisp (AUS) by four points. ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Blanca Manchon (ESP) had an up and down day finishing first, second and fourteenth to sit out of the podium places in fourth place. But with plenty of racing to come it is all to play for with Manchon and Ng looking dangerous.
