After day one of the Alfa Romeo Sigma European Championship on Dublin Bay today, Ben Richard's Lucent leads the 46 boat field by a slim one point advantage thanks to a consistent third and second place.

Local boats from the Irish East Coast fleet also fared well on the opening day with Rupert helmed by Paddy Varian taking third place overnight.

Irish favourite Tom Goodbody from Dun Laoghaire's Royal Irish Yacht Club had a mixed day, an disappointing eighth in race one compensated for by a win during the afternoon competition.

The top four boats, including Goodbody appear set to establish an exclusive group at the head of the fleet as a points gulf has already started to emerge.

Racing continues tomorrow with a further two races daily until Friday morning's ninth and final race.
