Happy birthday, Dragons!

Only a few hours left before the start in San Remo is the first race of the jubilee regatta, dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Dragon class. It involved 162 crew of more than two dozen countries on four continents. Russia is represented by 15 teams.

Participants will be divided into two fleets (81 team each). After four qualifying races will continue competition in Gold and Silver fleets.

Yesterday at the Yacht club Sanremo took place the solemn opening of the regatta, which was attended by all teams and guests. The President of the International Association “Dragon” class Vasily Senatorov, addressing the audience, said: “Here in San-Remo, I have the feeling that we are present at the birthday party. Almost all of those who are related to our class of yacht, arrived here, and here is an amazing friendly atmosphere. Well, happy birthday, “Dragons”!

Repeat: until the start of the first race (there are two scheduled today) – only a few hours. Good luck to the Russian crews – and all the rest!

P. S. Well, jinxed: because of too strong wind races today, Monday, had to cancel. What to do… Wait…
