Patrick Demesmaeker takes the lead by one point after Day 1 at 2016 Europeans

IMG_2396DXOPatrick Demesmaeker and crew Gilles Tas take the lead by one point after first racing day at 2016 Europeans sailed in Brest.

Programme completed after day one in Brest, where Race Officer Philippe Faure did succeeded to provide the 50 teams with 3 good races. Demesmaeker/Tas (BEL) got a 6-2-2, when  Jolbert Vandijk/Frank de Waard (NED) scored 9-1-1, just ahead Antoine Ferrec/Foucauld Delaplace (FRA) 5-5-3.

This means the fight is more than likely to be very tense at the top of the fleet, any mistake meaning immediate downgrading in provisional ranking as a result.

It is to notice that Cruz Gonzalez Smith-Mariano Heuser (ARG) did won the first race…but did forgot to sign out…then receiving a DPI from the Jury. They so stand at #5, with 22 points
