Team Tigger take the Open Belgian Championships.
Ostend was the setting for the Open Belgian Championships;
a regatta in its own right and a warm up for the Dragon Gold
Cup which is being held there next week.
After a tough regatta with long days on the water and extreme
tidal conditions mathematically 4 boats could win the championship
going into the last race.
As could be expected Poul Richard Hoj Jensen fought hard to
win the final race, however Tim Tavinor crewed by Thomas Wilton
and Pedro Andrade crossed the line in a solid second place
to take the title.
Relative newcomer to the Dragons Ben Van Cauwenbergh continued
his successful season to finish third overall and Belgian
give a more detailed account of the regatta.
