Princess Sofia Trophy - Day 1 plays to GBR strengths

Breeze on for the first day of the Trofeo Princesa Sofía Iberostar in Palma and that normally means some British Team sailors will feature at the front.

Well, maybe could have done with a bit more breeze, but the 49er and Nacra saw Team GBR sailors getting a good start to the Regatta, and some useful results in the FX, Laser, Radial and RS:X.

The 49er has a three-way tie after three races, with James Peters and Fynn Sterritt top of the leaderboard and Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell in third.

In the 49erFX Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey are fifth, picking up a win in race 3.

Elliot Hanson also picked up a win in his first race in the Laser event and is fourth overall. Jack Cookson also won a race to place sixth, and Nick Thompson won his first heat and is 16th.

In the Radial class, Alison Young is third overall with a 2, 4.

The Nacra17 was a happy hunting ground for the Brits with Tom Phipps and Nikki Boniface in second overall after winning the third race. British competitors hold four of the top six places.

And into the boards where Tom Squires is fourth after a 6 and 2 in the men's RS:X.
