Open Belgian Championship sailed under perfect conditions!

Post by IDA » Wed Aug 08, 2018 9:47 am

From 2-5 August the Royal North Sea Yacht Club in Ostend was again the host for this event.

25 dragons from France, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Belgium were competing for the title under perfect sailing conditions.

Some days light winds, other days medium and one race heavy wind, but always with warm and sunny weather.

After sailing every day nice social events like pontoon drinks, BBQ and gala dinner which was well appreciated by the participants.

After a close final it was team BEL-79 (Princess Sofia helmed by Alex Helsen) that won the Championship just before team NED-422 (Elephant helmed by Jan Bakker) and team BEL-80 (Fl4t Out helmed by Ben Van Cauwenbergh). Our target for next year is to have 30-35 dragons at the start. Please talk to the participants to get their experience and hope to see many dragon sailors next year! Full results available on the IDA website.
