Douarnenez 2010

The immaculate organisation and race management that we come to expect from the team at Douarnenez were evident again in 2010, so that the biggest Dragon turnout of 2010 enjoyed two great series of racing.
In the first non discard series, the Coup de Bretagne, Anatoly Loginov’s team sailed consistently – always within the top 4 places - to take the podium, with Poul Richard Hoj Jensen winning two races but not managing to challenge Loginov in second. Louis Urvois finished 3rd.

 

 

The Grand Prix series had 74 entries. Tommy Mueller had a clear victory showing magic speed in his new out of the factory Dragon and also reading the wind well in the tricky northerly breeze. Louis Urvois again had a great regatta, finishing second. It is always nice when there is a shake up in the fleet, newcomer to Dragon sailing Klaus Diederichs (with Andy Beadsworth and Jamie Lea)finished 3rd ; certainly a team to look out for in the future!

With 20 points separating the next 10 places every position and decision was important.

 

 

 

Early season is always a busy time for Petticrows, and the champagne was flowing with a large number of new boat launchings taking place at the regatta. As well as Tommy Meuller launching his new Dragon, we also had 2 new Australian boats, 1 French and 1 Swedish hitting the water for the first time.
