The first Grand Prix win at the Atlantic Tour 2015 went to Marc Bettinger and Bacardi (Balou du Rouet x Argentinus). The CSI2* 1.45 class had fifty riders in it, but the German rider was in a league of his own producing a double clear round and a time in the jump-off that was almost three seconds faster than that of runner-up Laura Renwick on Heliodor Hybris (Diamant de Semilly x Canonball). Bruno Chimirri and Luca (Lux x Amaretto I) ended third, almost four seconds behind the winner on the clock.

At the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour, Pieter Clemens won the CSI2* 1.45 Grand Prix. Riding Quali Quanti (Quantum x Silvester), the Belgian rider had one of only four double clear rounds in this class that counted over sixty riders. Almost two seconds behind in the jump-off was Philippe Leoni on Shana de Kerglenn (Diamant de Semilly x Quito de Baussy), while third place belonged to another French rider – Harold Boisset aboard Palese St Loise (Quidam de Revel x Papillon Rouge).

At the Sunshine Tour, the CSI3* 1.55 Grand Prix was won by Anddre Sakakini. The Italian rider was aboard HW’S Saskia (Stakkato Gold x Promotion), and was only fractions faster in the jump-off than runner-up Reed Kessler on Cos I Can (Olympic Lux x Harlequin de Carel) as only 0.03 seconds separated the two riders. Third place went to Yuri Mansur on Cornetto K (Cornet Obolensky x Calido).
