Australia's Andrew "Amac" McDougall won the opening race of the PUMA Moth World Championship to top the leaderboard at the end of day one of racing in Dubai, UAE.

With day one of PUMA International Moth Worlds coming to a completion, the event is shaping up to be a battle of wits, weather and worldliness. With a forecast that is fairly typical- light to moderate breeze, generally flat water and the likelihood of at least a few low-riding (off the foils) races, time will prove interesting results over the course of this week.

The fleet sailed one race today, the course being a standard windward leeward course, three times around, each leg a mile in length. The conditions on day one were calm waters with 6-8 knots of breeze, a bit light for the Moths. The light wind speed made it difficult for sailors to get up, and stay up on their foils. Andrew “Amac” McDougall (AUS) lead the first beat and finished race one with a bullet. Michael Lennon (GBR), Brad Funk (USA), local favourite Chris Graham (UAE) and 2006 World Champion Simon Payne (GBR) rounded out the top five in the 44-boat fleet.

Reigning World Champion Bora Gulari (USA) came in 12th, with 2009 Worlds bronze medallist Arnaud Psarofaghis (SUI) in 17th.
