Dragons show at the Sanremo Yacht Club

One of the most important classes in world sailing is back in Sanremo: the Dragons, who will compete this week in the finals of the European Grand Prix in the waters in front of the Matuziana bay. Very high level of the participants who come from 13 nations to compete for the overall victory of the Grand Prix series. The Russian Loginov, the German Diederichs, in crew with Diego Negri, fresh World Champion in the Star class, the English Andy Beadsworth who races for Turkey, are some of the candidates for the podium. There are also two Sanremo crews: that of Sandro Solerio, a new entry in the Class, with various titles behind him, and that of the president of the Yacht Club Sanremo Beppe Zaoli. It will be a wonderful sight to admire the forty boats competing for the title of Dragon European Grand Prix Champion. Five exciting days of racing, which will start on Wednesday 27 October until Sunday 31 October, at the end of which the final award ceremony will take place at the Yacht Club Sanremo. At the end of this event, many boats will stop in Sanremo in view of the winter circuit of the Winter Series, scheduled for the whole winter, until next year’s European Championship, in April. A particular thanks goes of course to the Municipality of Sanremo for the precious support, to the Liguria Region, to the main Sponsor Paul & Shark, the historic clothing brand linked to this class, and to the historic friends of the Club without whom all this would not be possible, that is Abate Gioielli, the Royal Hotel, Portosole and the Cozzi Parodi Group. Sanremo and its Yacht Club are increasingly proving to be the Capital of Sailing in the Mediterranean.
