Sunday – First day of race

There was no wind today, so the boats had to be in full sail. As it was the first course of the competition, the teams were rather tense. There were two false starts : the US team from Rhodes Island and the Swiss team from Lausanne. As they didn’t notice, they didn’t stop and finished 1st and 2nd, but they were disqualified. The two following courses were much more heated.

The results :

1 – England

2 – France (Audencia)

3 – Scotland

4 – Japan

5 – Czech

6 – France (Polytechnique)
