Nacra 17s @Palma 2016, Day 1: Besson-Riou lead after 3 bullets

Photo: Kohlhoff & Werner will try to secure their ticket to Rio at Palma, by Pedro Martinez / Sailing Energy / Sofia. - Give Billy and Marie  the Gold medal already. Interview by the Org with Besson earlier today here.
Top ten after 3 races held today below. It seems Iker Martinez was denied by the Spanish Sailing Fed a new qualy event to define which crew is going to Rio as he was injured at past Nacra 17 Worlds. 2008 Tornado Gold medalist Fernando Echavarri will get a chance to grab the another medal in the Nacra 17 along Santi Lange. More info later on this.
