TWO world sailing championships were held off the coast of Fremantle in recent weeks.

A boat from Turkey won the Dragon World Championships, after ten races over six days with 35 dragon boats plying the Indian Ocean.

In the final race on Wednesday (January 9), the “Provezza Dragon”, crewed by Andy Beadsworth, Ali Tezdiker and Simon Fry, clinched first place.

Earlier in the week, American Mike Martin won the 505 World Championships on his craft “Mike’s Boat”.

The 505 event was hosted by Fremantle Sailing Club and 89 Australian and international crews competed.
