Régates Royales – Trophée Panerai : Only for the Dragons.

Eole is on strike. Today’s weather was definitely not on the race committee’s side at the Régates Royales – Trophée Panerai: cloudy, warm, humid, and unfortunately no breeze!

The Dragon’s tactics

Only, the 63 One designs were able to take a start today, in the light and unstable southerly breeze. And the best tactics win the day! Apart from the first placed, the French crew on Child’s Dream IV (Jean-Pierre Gailes) who were over the line … After a very hardly fought race it was the British trio on Blue Haze (Ivan Bradbury) to win followed by two Russians boats: Dragon (Yuri Bozhedomov) and Sunflower (Victor Fogelson). Unfortunately, only 35 boats crossed the line today, the rest of the fleet being overtime.
