A windless day welcomed the competitors at day one of the Speed Europeans in Dungarvan, Ireland.

After the mandatory skippersmeeting the competition was put on hold to see if the conditions improve, but it became clear quite fast that there wasn't anything to be expected for the day.

In expectation of the good conditions forecasted for the next three days the competitors were released early.
