The Dragons return to Sanremo for the INTERNATIONAL ITALIAN DRAGON CUP – PAUL & SHARK TROPHY.

 In a very difficult year for all events, especially the international ones, on the occasion of the International Italian Dragon Cup, now traditionally sponsored by Paul & Shark, many athletes from different nations have chosen to go to the Riviera di Ponente to compete in this now traditional appointment. Swiss, German, Russian, French, Swedish and even an Australian crew, as well as of course the Italians, will take to the water to compete in the first regattas on Thursday 25 March. The level of participation is very high: from the Russians Samokhin and Loginov, already winners of a World Championship, to our Diego Negri and, the newcomer in the class, Tommaso Chieffi, just to give some examples among the many Champions who will race with this elegant boat that for more than 90 years it has attracted the great names of world sailing. Among the well-known faces also the President of the Sanremo Yacht Club, Beppe Zaoli, assisted by an international group. There will be four days of intense regattas which, for the first time, will not be followed by “social” moments: however the Yacht Club Sanremo has provided surprises for the participants every day. On Sunday 28 March, at the end of the regattas, the awards ceremony will take place at the Yacht Club Sanremo. The Dragons will return to Sanremo in October for the Grand Prix, one of the four races in the world that constitute the highest level of competition in this beautiful class.
