The south westerly is blowing 20 knots on the Hauraki Gulf. Both fleets are away at last; the yellow fleet after two general recalls; the blue fleet on the first attempt. A much better day than yesterday when a light and shifty breeze refused to settle blowing out the day.



In the yellow fleet, Australia’s Sarah Blank, fourth ranked in the world, had a clear lane to the left corner, found the shift she wanted and led the fleet at the top mark, ahead of the USA’s Paige Railey, Charlotte Dobson (GBR) third, with Sophie de Turckheim fourth, the pre-regatta favourite Sari Multala (FIN) was sixth with Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) eighth.



Blanck was unheaded, she crossed the finished line four lengths ahead of Sari Multala with Paige Riley third. Sophie de Turckheim was on her stern with Charlotte Dobson a length back followed by Anna Tunnicliffe.

The 2007 European Laser Radial Champion Evi Van Acker (BEL) won the Blue fleet race from Solenne Brain (FRA) with the 2006 World Champion China's Lijia Xu third. A good result from Brain, who has ranked as high as eighth on the ISAF charts back in 2005 but is currently back in 26th place.

A delay before the start of race two for both fleets.

Here are the combined fleet results after the first race.
