Day 2 of the 2014 Grand Prix Guyader - Dragon Class

European Champion Lars Hendriksen will be trying to win this 5th Match Race Event!

Other teams taking part this year will be World Champion “Runners Up” RUS 76 “Strange Little Girl” with Dmitry Samokhin at the helm, also GBR 795 Tom Vernon who has come from a very popular and competitive X Boat Class in the Solent, UK.. Tom is quickly adapting to the skills required to make a Dragon go fast, so will be a difficult team to beat on a One to One basis…
