Hoj Jensen takes control

Consistent conditions for a change on the IJsselmeer at the Gaastra Dragon World Championship

Thursday September 10th 2009, Author: Linda Laan-du Pon, Location: United Kingdom
Dutchman Mark Neeleman won both races on the fourth day of the Gaastra Dragon Worlds. He was the most consistent in the typical IJsselmeer conditions. However Dragon legend Poul Richard Hoj Jensen is back on top of the leaderboard, but by only two point over Lars Hendrikson. It promises to be a very exiting final race tomorrow.

Neeleman was very pleased with his results of today which brings his team to fifth place in the overall series: “When we were preparing for the worlds we did not have much time to train on the water because we were mainly busy with the boat in good shape. But today everything went our way. Our speed is getting better every race but I’m afraid it’s too late to be a real contender for the title.”

Hoj Jensen continued his good form with a sixth and a fourth place: “It was tough, I am very tired. Luckily we were a bit lucky today with our choices. But it was great fun being on the water today. Just one race left and we still have a good chance of grabbing the title, that would be a perfect ending of a great championship.”
