THE RIGHT WATCH FOR THE WIN

The Dragon Fly Plus came out victorious at the Porsche of Naples Cup. After losing the first race on the first day of the regatta, the Dragon Fly picked up speed and soon left the competition far behind. During the decisive seconds, the Leinfelder Meridian Antigua, Leinfelder Uhren München's sailing chronograph, once more proved a most faithful companion. 

 

For Captain Frank Brown and his international crew, the regatta could hardly have been more of a nail-biter. In the first race, the Dragon Fly Plus had to content itself with second place. During the second race, however, the wind picked up, and the Dragon Fly gained more speed. Eight boats were almost neck and neck sailing towards the starting line, but the Dragon Fly Plus's timing was superior to the other yachts, and so Captain Frank Brown was able to take the lead and maintain it all the way to the end of the four races to come. “Nowhere does each second count as much as at the start,” says Brown. “Especially in hectic situations, my Leinfelder Meridian Antigua is the perfect sailing watch. It is specially made for sailing regattas and includes a flyback functionality, a second sub-dial and a tachymeter scale. And on top of that, it is easy to handle thanks to the long, curved push-pieces.”
