Former 2003 world champions Gabrio Zandona and Andrea Trani got off to a flier in today’s shifty conditions, with a first and second placing to lead the points tally with three, just one point ahead of Onan Barreiros and Aaron Sarmiento (ESP) and Nic Asher and Elliot Willis (GBR).

Nic Asher and Elliot Willis were second in each of the first two races, the first going to the Italians and the second to Spain's Barreiros and Sarmiento.

Nick Rogers and Joe Glanfield (GBR) are in seventh overall after a sixth and a third.

Nathan Wilmot and Malcolm Page (AUS), with already three world title crowns to their credit, crossed the line in sixth and third place respectively and admitted it was not an ideal start but definitely something they could build on. The World No.1 ranked Aussie pair are now placed seventh overall heading into another two qualifying races tomorrow.

“It was an alright start ... we had to come from behind in the first race because we were really deep and we had to fight our way back quite a lot,” Wilmot said today.

Slightly built French pair Pierre Leboucher and Vincent Garos admitted the light winds, which is what is expected at the Beijing Olympics later this year, is more to their liking.

“We have a good feeling in the smaller wind … the more wind we have, the more difficult it is for us,” Leboucher said.

And after finishing second and fourth, are lying in fifth position overall on six points, with plenty of racing to go.
