Split in three fleets, the Lasers sailed their first two races of the 2012 World Championship yesterday in a 10-15 kn breeze. Winning both races of his fleet, the defending World Champion Tom Slingsby AUS has already taken the overall lead, followed by Tonci Stipanovic CRO and Rutger Schaardenburg NED on the ranks 2 and 3. Rasmus Mygren SWE and Andreas Geritzer AUT are on the positions 4 and 5. Only five sailors succeeded to book two single-digit results in this highest competitive Olympic class. Already struggling however is the Olympic Champion Paul Goodison GBR, penalised twice for pumping and forced to abandon race 2. The Swiss excitement lasted no longer than race 1, where Christoph Bottoni SUI and Christian Steiger SUI finished on the excellent ranks 4 and 6 of their fleets. But in the second race they were buried way down in the rankings and it is Guillaume Girod SUI on rank 55, who is the best Swiss for the moment.
