Great Britain’s Poul Richard Hoj Jensen is the Cascais Dragon Gold Cup winner. Poul Jensen with Theis Palm and Andrew Mortem were ninth in the final race and won the championship, with a four point advantage over Gavia Wilkinson-Cox, Jon Mortimer and Ron Rosenberg (GBR).

Britain’s day was completely successfully, with Robert Campbell’s third overall, and Nations Cup title, that Gavia Wilkinson-Cox will take home.

No one was able to stop Britain’s supremacy. Portugal’s Manuel Champalimaud started the final race second overall, but the 24th today dropped him to sixth place.

Russia’s Maxim Semerkhanov, Dmitri Tereshkin and Ruslan Formichev won race 6. Ukraine’s Eugeniy Braslavets, Sergey Timokhov and Claus Olesen and Portugal’s António Mardel Correia, Pedro Rebelo de Andrade and Bernardo Santos, were second and third.

Consistancy was Poul Richard Hoj Jensen’s secret to win Cascais Dragon Gold Cup. Jensen ended the championship with a total of 95 points. Gavia Wilkinson-Cox scored 4 points more but gets the Nations Cup, because she was the best placed boat of the top winning nation (Great Britain) on the last race.

Quote by Poul Jensen:

'Last race wind conditions were very shifty. The competition was very tough. The Dragon class is stabilized and is still growing in number of boats. There are a lot of very good sailors arriving. The no discard rule makes competition harder. A bad result can compromise your possibilities'

The next Dragon Gold Cup 2009 will be held in Denmark.
