Hyde sails choose a punishing weekend to test the new breed of Dragon sails.
The first Dragon event of the year was held over the Easter holiday from the Royal Corinthian Yacht club. It was a windy event to say the least and the River Crouch gave the Dragons a harsh few races. Hyde put a new set of sails on 'Beauty & The Beast' and they were certainly tested. The light winds of the first day gave the chance for Helm Peter Marchant to get the feel of them but the rest of the weekend the wind gods just blew. The sails performed well with the team finishing second overall and all the crew very happy with the sails performance.
