Full of bounce.....
Despite taxing weather conditions in Douarnenez - Petticrows
are delighted that our new style 2012 Dragons are at the front
of the fleet.
The Danish team Jen Christensen, Kin Andersen and Anders Bagger
completed the perfect double by winning both the Coup de Bretagne
and the Grand Prix Guyader.
Their boat "Out of Bounce" was new for this season
and incorporates the new 2012 style deck, with the coamings
flared out enabling the crew to sit 6cm further outboard in
a much more comfortable position. The 2012 model also has
a number of features in the cockpit to improve drainage and
increase the overall buoyancy.
They were also using the stiff i-mast/North sails rig combination
which generated good boat speed in all conditions.
For further details and pictures of the new model Dragon
Or find Tim at one of the may regattas he attends - he will
be pleased to give you a guided tour of all the new boat features
that have evolved on our latest Dragons.
