get-attachment (20)GBR 789 leads the final race of the “Tune Up”, alas only 3 races were completed.

With 90 International Dragons prepared to take to the waters in Medemblik today, this will be one of the best Gold Cup’s ever…..  The “Who’s who” of sailing will battle it out for 6 days, one race per day, until one happy team eventually lift this prestigious trophy on Friday evening.

With all 90 boats now safely moored at the inner harbour of Medemblik, a real “party” atmosphere is building throughout the town. The main sponsor, BMW, are showing off some of their beautiful cars and the beer will be flowing when the teams return each day and gather around the purpose built pontoons.

Unfortunately the “Tune Up” regatta could not be completed due to lack of wind on Friday, however the three top boats NED 402, DEN 332 & RUS 76 will all take a certain amount of confidence into todays first race at 12.00.

Keep watching for videos and daily updates on each race of this “non” discard series, which means that it’s most certainly “Never Over till it’s Over”………

Higher, Faster, Spicier………..     Stavros.  (GER 1102)
