The 2012 505 World Championship got under way in La Rochelle amid sunny conditions. With a light south-westerly breeze forecast, the race officials took the decision to keep the 187 boat fleet ashore, opting for a four hour postponement to allow sufficient conditions for the fleet to launch.

As the fleet took to the water, the breeze steadily increased to 15kts allowing the race committee to get the first race underway.

President of the race committee Piere Lemaire commented 'We have already had a fantastic SAP 505 Pre-World Championship with six races sailed giving visiting crews the chance to practice in the La Rochelle waters. This year’s SAP 505 World Championship got off to a great start today, we were able to run two races in some great conditions in spite of the extremely large number of teams on the water (188 boats – 396 Sailors) we witnessed quite a spectacle this afternoon most notably when the fleet returned from the windward mark with spinnakers hoisted!'

Race 1

1. Stefan Bohm / Gerald Roos – GER 9035
2. Christian Kellner / Martin Shoeler – GER 9090
