During the lead up to the Olympics when you are in a dominant position it is important to keep the pressure on your rivals imposing your advantage on each and every occasion. That was evident on the first day of the Trofeo Princesa Sofia IBEROSTAR where France's four-times Nacra 17 world champions Billy Besson and Marie Riou composed a perfect opening day with three back-to- back race wins in brisk, near ideal Bay of Palma conditions.
