Results are in after the first day of competition. After three races for each Class division, China dominates the Techno 293 fleets.
Conditions were quite gusty and proved to be challenging for the Techno Youth Boys who scored very varied points. China's Huang Hong took the first bullet of the day followed by a second place then a sixth. 14 year old Chang Ho Yin sailed most consistently with two fours and a third to take second place overall. Six points behind him are Lin Xiumin, winner of the third race, and Fen Cancheng from China with equal points. This promises to be an exciting competition for the Techno Youth Boys as they get used to the conditions and when discards come into play. China's Lin Zubin scored the second bullet of the day but sits in 10th place overall because of an "OCS" in race three.
However a little more consistency in the Techno Youth Girls as Zhao Jieman stamped her authority on the fleet by winning all three races today with Zhang Jiemo, also from China, now second overall. 14 year old Choi Wing Chi Sandy (HKG-31) sits in third place but with equal points to Singapore's Lim Ynez.
China also dominates the Techno Men & Women with Lin Ruijying and Xie Lidiao taking the first two places over the line in all three races. Maho Horino from Japan is in third place.
