A small fleet of Finns is taking part in Kieler Woche, many fresh from last week's Europeans in Gdynia.

While many had a turn at the front of the fleet, at the end of Day 1, Nicholas Heiner leads with a 1,2,1.

Nils Theuninck picked up a 2,4,2 to lie in second while third is Facundo Olezza with a trio of thirds.

The second race was won by Max Salminen.
