Sofía Iberostar - Day 1 results

Mallorca's 49th Trofeo Princesa Sofía Iberostar regatta - the biggest ever - for the Olympic classes is underway.

With two years now until the 2020 Tokyo Olympics the Sofía Iberostar regatta is an almost essential fixture.

The regatta marks the start of the journey for country qualification for Japan leading up to this season's World Championships of Aarhus.

Fickle, light winds provided testing conditions and saw the light weather specialists hitting the front, while some big names suffered and will hope for more wind tomorrow.

Sofía Iberostar is an open regatta, without the invitation system of the World Cup Series events, this means big fleets and a big challenge for the organisation, but is preferred by the competitors.
