2015

The Transbunker Sailing Team (Markus Wieser) will be sailing the 3rd Premier Dragon Prototype in 2015. The season started very well for them, with a 1st place at the Dubai Dragon Championship in February. 

At the end of February the boat was shipped to Europe and sailed for the first time on European waters during the Italian Championship. 

The Transbunker Sailing Team won the Italian Championship and achieved a 2nd place at the Grand Prix Guyader in France. 

After some initial trouble due to stong currents, UAE7 achieved a 3rd place at the 2015 Dragon Worlds in La Rochelle!!

As Markus Wieser was busy racing the TP52 "Platoon" built by PCT early this year, his team Colleague and Wolrd Champion Evgenij Braslavets borrowed Wieser's boat and crew for the European Championship in Bastad. "The Premier Dragon is very nice to sail, we had a very good week and won with a lead of 26 points. Its nice to win my first European Champion title on this new Dragon" comments Evgenij Braslavets. 

With Markus Wieser at the helm the Transbunker Sailing Team won the German Grand Prix in Kuehlungsborn and achieved a 7th place at the Gold Cup. 

Overall the team is 4th in the 2015 International Ranking List. 

2014

The 3rd Premier Dragon prototype was sailed for the very first time during the 2014 December training in Dubai. Both the Transbunker Sailing Team and Team Premier had a chance to test this new Dragon. 

Markus Wieser (Transbunker Sailing Team): "Lots of small modifications went into prototype 3 and I have to say it is a really good boat to sail now. It is very nicely balanced, easy to drive and during our testing session in December we always had a small edge, under any condition".
