French new Dragon owners are on form at La Baule.

Light to medium winds and very shifty conditions greeted over 50 Dragons in the Dragon Derby at La Baule. Many large wind shifts made it difficult to get the tack ticks right all the time.

For Poul Richard the conditions meant that it was difficult to draw meaningful conclusions from his first regatta with the new i-mast section, however with a third place overall his initial assessment is that the new mast is very good.

Christian Boillot (MON 11) had an exceptional day on Friday reading the wind shifts well and sealing his position at the front of the fleet. RUS 27 Anatoly Loginov finished second overall sailing with the consistency we come to expect from him.

The triumph for Petticrows is having 3 brand new 2009 boats in the top 5. Jean Breger collected his boat from the factory the previous week, and showed blistering boat speed to finish 4th overall. He is pictured giving Ulysse a sip of champagne on departure from Petticrows.

Also pictured is Jean Claude Danet discussing the fit out of his new boat, Lady Jane, with Nicolas Abiven and Katie. He collected the new boat in April and finished 5th overall.
