With eighty two boats measured, racing at Fleetwood began on time at 10:00 am.
The seeding races were sailed using a zig zag course whilst the race team waited for the wind to shift from the WNW – NW which it did by race two allowing for the full length of the Fleetwood lake to be used.
The seeding races were won by James Edwards, Darin Ballington, Chris Harris, Rob Walsh and Gavin Watson.
Racing was undertaken at a good pace with race race 6C complete by close of play.
The conditions were tricky with the top ten all counting a high score meaning the results are wide open with the championship all to play for going into day two.
