Congrats to the 2019 Dragon Gold Cup winners Pedro Andrade, Star class veteran Christian Giannini (and ADA Member) and Joao Vidinha. They had battled several major gear failures during the week, including a broken gooseneck, ripped spinnaker, failed bilge pumps and a broken runner, but in spite of that, they not only won the regatta, but won it by a convincing ten points.
Congrats also to Double Olympic Gold Medalist and Dragon sailing legend Poul Richard Hoj-Jensen, who the Dragon fleet call simply The Man in recognition of his immense contribution to the class, who took victory in the Corinthian Division, or has he calls it the "weekend sailors' class". Crewed by old friends Hamish McKay and Chris Brittain, 75 years young Poul may now class himself as a weekender.
Anne Garrett is the National Secretary for the American Dragon Association and has been sailing and racing Dragons since the early 80s.
