The Spanish crew, Iker Martinez and Xabier Fernandez, signalled they will be hard to beat with a first up victory in the 15 race 2008 Olympic 49er series on Course A, just off the seawall of Qingdao Harbour today.

Denmark’s Jonas Warrer and Martin Ibsen led from the pin, followed by Britain's Steve Morrison and Ben Rhodes with the Sibello brothers (ITA) third.

The Danes led at the top mark from Italy, GBR and Spain. Tim Wadlow and Chris Rast (USA) were fifth. 2008 World Champions, Australian’s Nathan Outteridge and Ben Austin were back in 15th place and to make things worse they hit the top mark and had to do penalty turns.

Down the run Denmark held their lead from Pietro Sibello and Gianfranco Sibello (ITA) and the Spaniards, who had sailed into third place. The lead positions were unchanged for the beat, with the best gains along the rock wall, but on the last run Martinez and Fernandez lead across the line.

Placings were ESP,DEN,ITA,GBR,USA,UKR,FRA,JPN,AUT,BRA,NOR,POR,CAN,CRO,AUS,GER,SWE,CHN.

In the second race the British team (Morrison and Rhodes) make a good gain on the right and led at the top mark from Austria (Delle-Karth and Resch), Germany (Jan-Peter and Hannes Peckolt) and Denmark who came from the same side. Australia who had been fast from the pin led the left hand fleet, but rounded fifth overall. Up the second beat Austria held the lead, 50 metres ahead of Australia.

But the last run was the Australians. They powered away from the Austrians, sailing higher they picked up 13 seconds to take the gun. Austria was second, GBR third, ahead of DEN, FRA,GER,POR,ESP,ITA,FRA,UKR,CAN,USA,CRO.NOR,JPN,POL,SWE,CHN.
