Dragon Friendship Regatta. Bodrum Offshore Yacht Klub (Turkey) and Royal Corinthian Yacht Club (Burnham on Crouch, UK)
A group of Turkish Dragon sailors, including Ali Tezdiker, current World Champion, visited Burnham over the weekend of 18/19th August. After 5 excellent races in gusty conditions, the winners were Mark & Mandy Wade and Nigel Cole. The Turkish sailors, who sail in Bodrum’s clear and almost tideless waters, found the somewhat muddy and strongly tidal waters of the UK East Coast a real challenge. The visit coincided with the Burnham Dragon fleet annual summer party, creating a great opportunity for friendship and bonding between Dragon sailors from 2 different backgrounds and experiences. The great success of the weekend will hopefully be repeated next year with a visit of the Burnham Dragon Fleet to Turkey.
