The National Yacht Club and Royal Cork Yacht Club combination scored 17, 20 and 18 in their opening rounds of the seven race series. Participation this week is part of their overall bid for Olympic qualification later this year.
Reigning World Champions, Annemiek Bekkering and Annette Duetz of the Netherlands hold the lead with Swedes holding second and third places in the 49erFX fleet.
Vilma Bobeck and Malin Tengström are about to contest the 49erFX Junior World Championships in Norway yet are proving they are world-class performers at the senior level, currently second in Kiel ahead of their teammates Klara Wester and Rebecca Netzler. As if that wasn’t enough Swedish dominance, Julia Gross and Hanna Klinga are in fifth place overall after a windy first day on the water.
