Daddy’s on form in Oslo race week.

“Daddy’s” is a very distinctive and beautiful new, dark blue and cream Petticrows Dragon which was delivered to Norway as the snow was melting in the spring.

The owner, Jorgen Paulsen, invited Tim from Petticrows to Oslo last weekend to help him set up the boat, assist with the crewing techniques and also visit one of Europe’s most geographically isolated Dragon fleets.
After a day of training on the water Jorgen, Kim and Tobby had all learnt a lot about the different techniques involved in sailing a Dragon fast - including a lot of spinnaker work and use of the rig controls.
They then launched into Oslo race week where they showed off their new found skills and recorded an impressive series of first places. Jorgen commenting that the boat was both very fast and responsive.
Jorgen, a long time Dragon sailor is delighted with his new boat which has really rejuvenated his enthusiasm for Dragon sailing - his lovely wife Hanne is already calling the boat Jorgen’s new mistress.

He is already considering the possibility of winter racing in southern Europe as the Norwegian sailing season is very short. Jorgen was not aware that there are a number of charter possibilities in both Cannes and Cascais over the winter months which Petticrows can help organise.
