Dragon Class SW Championship - Alfie victory

Laurie Smith, crewed by Joao Matos Rosa and Tim Tavinor, won the Dragon South West Championship.

A 5, 2, 2 scoreline on day 2 gave Smith a two point victory ahead of Graham Bailey, William Heritage, William Bedford & Julia Bailey (8,4,1).

Third place went to Eric Williams, Rory Paton and Katie Cole (2,7,3) with the same points score.

The event preceeds the 70th edition of the Edinburgh Cup, the Dragon Class open British Championship, which starts Tuesday 3 July through to Saturday 7 July.

The five day championship event will be sailed in what is said to be the South West’s finest waters and hosted by the Royal Torbay Yacht Club (RTYC).

The forecast for the opening day is for more breeze and a continuation of the bright, unbroken sun.
