Four races were run, in a light wind of 5 to 8 knots under a blazing sun!

On the 29er side, the Corentin Goulon and Valentin Alakiletoa crew dominate the championship whether the wind is strong or weak. The same is true for the RS Feva with the domination of the crew Raphael Bouzigues and Benjamin Benhayoun.

The rest of the ranking on the other hand is changing and the places are changing..., with good heats and not so good... the Australian team has done well today they take third place on the podium.

Among the optimists, Romain Lecoyer keeps the leadership, he is neck and neck with Aurel Martin, the 2018 title holder. The rest of the regatta promises to be hot.

In the women's category, Juliette Babey made a great comeback, taking 4th place.

All the boats are ashore, the next part to come on Facebook the pictures of the day and the video summary and we will meet tomorrow for the next part of the championship at 11H00 Baie de Sainte Marie.
