Malaysia’s Khairulnizam Efendy is in 44th place out of 49 sailors after the first two races in the men’s Laser event.
Khairul said after while the weather was good “the unpredictable wind condition made the race hard too handle”.
“I also made some mistakes along the way. This is my first race at this level and it is certainly a bit unnerving. But I hope to improve as my target is to get into the top 30 here,” he said.
Britain’s Tom Slings leads the race, followed by Juan Ignacio of Guatemala and Croatia’s Toncistipanovic.
The sailors have two more races to go.
