Mike Bullot leads day 1 at Hayling Island 2011 Laser World Champs

Mike Bullot mastered a first day of the light to medium breezes, big shifts and tide on the Hayling Island course at the 2011 Open Laser World Champs. His 1st and 2nd places put him just ahead of Paul Goodison (GBR) and Karl-Martin Rammo (EST). Mikes previous career best was sliver at last years worlds in Nova Scotia.
Andrew Murdoch had a good consistent day with 6th and 4th to sit 9th overall out of 159 boats in 2 fleets. Andy Malony and Josh Junior are in the early 20s after each having one great race and one not too bad. James Sandall, Max Andrews and Sam Meech each had a good race and one further back to leave them in the middle of the results. But it's early days and the tricky conditions are likely to result in big changes across the board.
