American duo Riley Gibbs and Louisa Chafee lead the Nacra 17 World Championships after the first three qualifying races were contested in light, sub 10 kt breezes and pleasant sunshine off La Grande Motte’s Baie de Aigues Mortes. They were protested after racing for a measurement infringement and penalised, ceding the lead to Britain’s John Gimson and Anna Burnett.
Bermuda pair Cecilia and Michael Wollmann had a fantastic Day One.
The Wollmann’s come off the water in 15th place overall as provisional results have been posted.
The Wollmann’s recorded finishes of 8th in the first race, they then finished 14th in the second and third in the 3rd race of the day to finish with 25 points.
