Finn Silver Cup 2012 got underway on Sunday 1st July, in Maubuisson near Bordeaux, France. German Lennart Luttkus takes the lead of Junior World Championship after consistent races today.

The championship started with nice but tricky conditions on the lake. Difference of pressure and shifts over the sailing area made it tough for the young sailors.

The first race gave the choice between the right with more pressure or the left with a more favoured angle, sailors spread over the course, some taking drastic options on each side of the frame.

The race winners came back from the left side on the third beat. Cem Gozen (TUR) was in front of the fleet for the last downwind but failed to pass through the gate before crossing the finish line. The young Turk who switched from the Laser to the Finn early this year, will face the jury later tonight. He bounced back in the second race with a fifth place. Meanwhile, it is James Hadden (GBR) who took the bullet closely followed across the line by Lennart Luttkus (GER) and Milosz Wojewski (POL).

Anders Pedersen (NOR) suffered from minor equipment failure and had to withdraw from the first race.
