The first race day of the J/24 Europeans began by being postponed due to high wind, near gale and thunder, but once the first warning signal sounded the three races of the day could be carried out without further major delays. However, a strong breeze presented itself every now and then during the day and the swap between jib and genoa kept most crews busy both before that start and during the races.
The first race was won by 5443 (USA), followed by VITESSE (GER) and Henk (GER); the second race was won by Henk (GER), followed by VITESSE (GER) and Quick & Dirty (GER); and race three was won by Il Riccio (GBR), followed by 5443 (USA) and Team Rotoman (GER).
After the first day of racing the Europeans is led by VITESSE, followed by Il Riccio and Henk.
