As conditions were not favourable for racing on St Georges day, our annual Dragon Trophy race was rescheduled for the Jubilee weekend and conditions did not disappoint with a solid easterly over a rising tide making for a great race.

We were able to field seven boats, with four racing in the faster A fleet, and three in the slower B class. Racing was close within the two fleets, with Mojo and Hinemoa taking line honours in their respective classes. Hinemoa just managed to hold on to a corrected time victory for the B class, but Segura put in  a great performance to snatch the podium in the A class.

As the A and B fleets sailed separate courses this race will  not be counted as part of the Thursday series.
