Dharmender Singh - Jeanneau Sailor of the month

Dharmender Singh of Army Yachting Node won his second national title this year by taking the top spot in the Laser Radial class at the 26th National Laser Sailing Championship at Hussain Sagar, Hyderabad.

By winning the title in extreme light wind conditions at this years event, he broke the myth that  Army Yachting Node’s sailors perform well only in heavy wind conditions.

Dharmender scored only one bullet in the 11 race series, but it was his consistency that paid off in the end. He topped the fleet with only 27 points.

“It was one of the most challenging light wind series I have sailed coz I was the heaviest among all the sailors. Keeping up with the fleet on downwind was difficult so I kept my patience and tried to gain maximum on upwind,” said the champion.

The 28 year old from Raipur, Uttar Pradesh,  is currently training in the Laser Standard class for making it to the Asian Championship scheduled early next year.
