Even Better.... As good as it gets in Cannes

The Allianz Dragon Grand Prix in Cannes kicked of the 2011 Grade 1 listed Dragon events. While many sailors still await the return of their Dragons from the worlds in Australia it was still impressive to see almost 70 Dragons turn out for the regatta.
The regatta was testing for both race officer and competitors with the winds being generally light and shifty, causing a number of black flag starts and the ever present possibility of getting caught out on the wrong side of the course.

For Petticrows the event was marked on the Friday evening with a champagne quadruple launch party. With 4 new boats being taken straight from the factory to the event. At the time of the party a very excited new boat owner Gavia Wilkinson-Cox was leading overall - proving that her custom pink string and pink accessories are a fast edition to her new Petticrows Dragon. Unfortunately for Gavia she was the wrong side of a large shift in the final race dropping to 5th overall allowing Vassily Senatorov, Igor and Alexander in RUS34 “Even Better” to take the title. Our congratulation to Vassily for winning the event in very difficult conditions.
