black flag

While we have always loved Blag Flag, LA’s best punk band ever, the Black Flag in sailboat racing is a total bummer. Case in point:

Day five of the Dragon Gold Cup 2021 by Yanmar in Marstrand, the second day of racing, produced perfect sailing conditions that allowed races three and four of the six-race series to be completed.

For Russia’s Anatoly Loginov it was a day of mixed emotions. Sailing with his long-standing team of Alexander Shalagin and Vadim Statsenko he showed the fleet a clean pair of heels in both races, but a black flag disqualification in the opening race of the no discard series means he now lies eighteenth in the overall standings with little chance of a podium finish.
