Lonton and Gray Sails win the 2009 Dragon East Coast ChampionshipsIan Gray, partner of Lonton and Gray sails wins the 2009 Dragon national championships.

The Dragon East Coast Championships were hosted by the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, Burnham-on-Crouch, over the late Spring Bank Holiday weekend.  There was 20 boats entered, of which five were visitors. It could not have been a better weekend, with glorious weather, sunshine and light to medium winds and very competitive racing.

The eight race series was held on windward leeward courses on the River Crouch, from a committee boat that had positioned herself just to East River Roach for those that know the river, and stayed in relatively the same position whole weekend as we enjoyed winds that were predominately from an easterly direction.

It proved to be a very competitive weekend with six different boats taking a winning gun.  However, Scorpio, helmed by Ian Gray and crewed by Nigel Cole and Keith Gray proved triumphant and won the event with a 4 point lead.
