Archive

Welcome to the Archive of the BDA. We are in the process of building up a comprehensive on-line facility which will allow you to view important documents relating to the history and heritage of the Dragon class in the United Kingdom. 

The BDA Archivist is Patrick Gifford.  Patrick has been a Dragon sailor, as crew and helmsman for almost half a century and has owned and raced 10 Dragons since he started sailing with Aida (K77) at Aldeburgh, England in 1963. He has owned 5 wooden Dragons in his time, built by four different builders, but currently races a Borresen GRP Dragon on the International Circuit and in the UK.  He has won many local events, British regional Championships and became the first ever winner of the Corinthian (all amateur) division at the Gold Cup in 2010. He is also a past Chairman of the IDA Technical Committee.  Patrick is interested in the restoration of Classics and the challenges that provides, as well as advising the section about forthcoming events and regattas.  Contact details: E-mail: Patrick@Gifford97.fsnet.co.uk, Work: +44 (0)20 7624 3275, Mobile: +44 (0)7930 558737

If you have any material that you feel would be appropriate for the archives, or if you have any additional information, or have spotted a mistake, please don't hesitate to contact Patrick.
