LaBauleThe La Baule Ladies prepare the delicious Langoustines for the lucky Sailors.

The first day of the 2016 Derby Dragon in La Baule was unfortunately cancelled yesterday through lack of wind, but that did not dampen the spirits of the 40 Dragon Teams who enjoyed a great lunch at the Y.C.L.B.

LaBaule4President Dominique Molett & the Committee of Y.C.L.B. “Open” the 2016 Derby Dragon.

Today the improved forecast will allow this popular and extremely well supported regatta to get underway with 3 or possibly 4 races…This wonderful town on the west coast of France always brings a smile to the sailors faces and not even the French “Fuel” strike could keep away the many travelling teams 🙂

LaBaule1The Dragons lay safely “side by side” in the shelter of the La Baule Harbour.

More news and results to follow over the next 3 days……….
