Dragons don't give up!
Despite all the efforts of the International Dragon Class Association and the organizers, this year all three regattas of the Grand Prix series, as well as the Golden Cup, were canceled due to the virus. The European Championship in the Dragon class has also been rescheduled to next year.
However, as reported by http://russiandragon.ru, the dragons do not give up. So, Pedro Andrade (POR 84), familiar to our yachtsmen as the silver medalist of Marblehead Trophy and a participant in last year's Russian Championship in St. Petersburg, decided to organize a regatta in the format of the Golden Cup (six long races without throwing out) and hold it in Vilamoura (Portugal) with October 6-11.
The name for this regatta has not yet been invented, but in just three days, confirmation has been received from 30 alleged participants, including our Anatoly Loginov (RUS 27), Mikhail Senatorov (RUS 31), Vasily Senatorov (RUS 34), Victor Fogelson (RUS 35 ), Igor Goikhberg (RUS 98).
The Regulation on the regatta is planned to be published together with the Regulation Marblehead Trophy 29-31 / 10, the Grand Prix finals 2-7 / 11 and the program of the Winter Cup for 2019-2020.
