Something for everyone on day 1. After a thunderstorm during the night, the day dawned grey, damp and a little bit cold but by the end it turned out to be a beautiful day in Sopot. Conditions started light with 6 to 8 knots but ramped up to 12-14 knots with gusts up to 20 plus knots - ideal for the heavy weather specialists but the gusts also caught many unwares leading to spectacular crashes. However, all fleets sailed three races so everybody was happy and it was a great start to this World Championship.
