Yes my friends and fellow Sailors, the most amazing “gift” is once again on offer at the Guyader Grand Prix, in Douarnenez May 4th to 8th 2015…..
For those of us lucky enough to attend “Louis Urvois” first Douarnenez extravaganza back in 2000 witnessed a lucky Russian Sailor win the first Petticrows Dragon with Harbeck Trailer and leave this famous Brittany venue with a smile on his face 🙂 This amazing arrangement was only made possible by the generousity of Poul and Sophia Hoj-Jensen (at Petticrows) Louis Urvois and various sponsors at that time…. Well I can tell you all that thanks to Tim and Kay Tavinor (at Petticrows), various sponsors and a number of “Private” Grand Prix Ambassadors the lottery prize is BACK !!
In addition to this unbelievable lottery prize there will be other superb prizes sponsored by BMW, there will also be a new Sutdio Lawful Trophy for the best Corinthian Team awarded by Guiseppe Duca. Around the magnificent “Tent” each evening there will be Beer flowing, Wine, Sardines, Crepe’s, Wine, Pate’, Music, Wine, Daily Prize Giving’s, Dancing, Singing and did I mention Wine…………… creating a most Fantastic Atmosphere.
So this event should be a “Must Do” on your 2015 calendar with a possible 80 to 100 boats expected and ample room for rigging/de-rigging, free parking space for trailers and cars, quick and efficient craning facilities, an excellent racing area and a brand new regatta format of 5 sailing days !! Where else would you want to be in May ?? Come join the fun and maybe, just maybe take home a brand new, out of the wrapper, squeaky clean, DRAGON 🙂
Higher, Faster, Longer….. Luckier……. Stavros.
