Beadsworth wins first race at Dragon Worlds

Andy Beadsworth with his team of Ali Tezdiker and Simon Fry won the first race of the 2017 Dragon World Championship in Cascais, Portugal.

Beadsworth (TUR1212) with his team of Ali Tezdiker and Simon Fry started from the pin end and led at the windward mark from Lawrie Smith (GBR 815) and Stephan Link (GER1162).

Beadsworth maintained his lead and by the final upwind beat to the finish just had to cover every move Lawrie Smith and his local crew could muster and crossed the finish line with a healthy 50 second lead.

Smith maintained second with the Russian crew helmed by Anatoly Loginov (RUS27) closing in third.

There was a slight shuffle of places in the top ten as a few Dragons appeared to over stand the finish line pin.

The Dutch crew helmed by Peter Heerema (NED412) held fourth and Michael Zankel (GER1177) gained ground for fifth.

70 Dragons from 19 nations are taking part on the challenging waters off Cascais.

For the first day of racing one longer race was scheduled using a two lap windward/leeward course of 2.2nm in length with a final upwind leg to the finish. Sailed in a gutsy 16 - 20 knots of breeze from 330 degrees, accompanied by rolling waves and warm hazy sunshine.
