San Remo 90th.......what an event!
Congratulations to Jens Christensen, Anders Bagger and Thomas Schmidt for winning the overall series, sailing their v6.1 Dragon. Great work from the Danish team who were definitely not "Out of Bounce" this week.
Also sailing the last v6.1 to leave the factory, so probably the youngest boat in the 90 year old fleet, was Dmitry Samokhin who won the Champion of Champions race.
It was a fantastic to see the great array of Dragons and the sportsmanship and camaraderie of the sailors.
The spectacle of the week must have been the Anniversary race. Benedikt Gaech, Johannes Schmol and Florian Abele had the delight of looking behind and seeing the chasing pack of 160 Dragons and held on to take line honours.
Well done, a race to remember.
Jens Christensen's v6.1 Dragon "Out of Bounce"
What is the collective noun for v6 Dragons?
Mario Quaranta and Benedikt Gaech, happy sailors! Mario made Benedikt's beautiful trophy, and is now also the proud owner of Benedikt's v6 Dragon too.
