Yesterday saw many 12 foot dinghies retiring from the racing due to the weather conditions off Hellerup.

The dinghies shipped a lot of water. Only 10 boats finished from the fleet of 19.

Rifat Edin received a black flag disqualification. Ed van Cortenberghe did not compete.

The overall results so far still show Dutch domination, holding on to the top four places.
