France led the first race. Behind them, Switzerland and USA fought to complete the podium. Defender crossed the line fourth.

The second race started as the first interrogations were emerging: Is Kedge Business School, the French crew, too strong? Is anyone able to challenge them? As everybody was expecting them, this second windward leeward race put a lot of pressure into France, they crossed second but got OCS. It has been the perfect occasion for the Scottish crew to reveal its teamwork and to finish first. Belgium and Ireland have been able to follow the new leader and to get the second and third rank.

The good weather and a nice wind condition allowed the organizers to launch a third windward leeward race. Once again France team dominated the race and finished first. Defender is struggling for their trophy as they finished sixth. The American team got back on the track, finishing third.

The last race of the day and the first coastal race was the best way to differentiate them. But everyone was aware of the importance of this last race, as it was also the first one counting for the AGPM trophy! Once again, the French crew has struck a blow. This third victory on a raw has definitely placed France as a serious competitor for the title! But this race has also disclosed other crews, such as the Australian team. Despite an average result at the previous races, they managed to put right their organization and to hit the second place.



This day has been quite animated. As a first approach to their boat, many crews have been able to get the best they could. Even though the French Kedge Business School has hit the top today, the race to the title is long run. They put pressure in other strong opponents still no doubt everybody will struggle tomorrow to earn the most desired trophy and the World Champion Title.
