The Moth class was dominated by the America's Cuppers: World Champion Paul Goodison GBR won the only race of the day ahead of Francesco Bruni ITA, (74 participants). Two races were sailed in the Easy-to-Fly Catamaran category. The first leader is Vendée Globe veteran Jean-Pierre Dick FRA ahead of Pierre-Eric Detroyat SUI. The two-person prototype class was dominated by the Swiss flying-phantom catamarans: Maxime Bachelin SUI leads Kristoffer Jonson SUI and Guillaume Rol SUI followed by several Olympic Nacra 17 catamarans with teams from China and Uruguay.
