Description:
Since its inception in 2008, many classes have been tremendous supporters of Cowes Classics Week. This is simply because the event provides exceptional racing on the water, coupled with a fun and varied social programme ashore. A number of International Dragons have competed in the past, and an invitation is extended to all Dragon owners to join again this year. Both modern and classic Dragons are eligible to compete, with trophies available for both modern and classic fleets, including the Royal Singapore Yacht Club International Dragon Trophy for 1st overall.Type your content here...

All the above helms have now been notified of their place for the Worlds in Weymouth.

Two helms who qualified have relinquished their places, allowing the first of those helms who did not qualify but asked to be considered for a place to be included. We currently have three other helms seeking a place. They will be considered on the first come, first served basis as allowed for in the rules.

In addition, we may be allocated further places as the host nation, depending on how many entrants come from other countries. Therefore anyone wishing to be considered, who has not already done so, should contact the Hon Sec as soon as possible.

 

The BDA Worlds Committee will be making a visit to the WPNSA later this month. This will allow us to recce the ground we shall be using, meet some of the full time team at the academy and to asses the facilities. The web site is alive and we are looking forward to putting on an excellent racing regatta for our fellow international Dragon sailors. All UK fleets can play their part and anyone wanting to help or seeking additional information is encouraged to speak with their fleet captain in the first instance.
