European and World selection procedures

Selection by the National Association is required to enter either the World or European Championships. The number of boats qualified to enter is determined by the International Dragon Association, see Appendices 9 and 10 in International Dragon Class Rules (www.intdragon.org). At present, the UK is entitled to select 11 boats although certain extra places can be granted at the discretion of the IDA to the home fleet if there is space. Selection will be based on the helmsman's performance. All applying helmsmen must be members of the BDA. Selection will be based on the three best results achieved by the helmsmen in the following regattas;

  1. Edinburgh Cup in the year preceding the application
  2. Edinburgh Cup in the year in which the application is made
  3. South Coast and East Coast Championship each of the year in which application is made a
  4. Up to one other Championship in such year designated by the BDA Officers by the AGM in such year.

Of the available places, three will be awarded at the sole discretion of the BDA Officers. The remainder will be awarded to the first nine applicants, as calculated from the helmsman's qualifying regatta results added on the low points scoring system per the ISAF Rulebook. The ranking will be calculated from results ignoring any non-BDA members and helmsmen who have qualified through another route. Those not attending a regatta will be ranked in that regatta as one more than the number of other BDA member helmsmen not otherwise qualified or if more 21. Any helmsman wishing to be considered for selection must notify the BDA Officers of his or her wish in writing, not later than 30th September in the year preceding that of the relevant European or World Championship, subject to conditions below.

The BDA will notify, in writing, all applicants for places not later than 31st October in the year preceding the relevant Championship, subject to conditions below. Where a Championship for which selection is required to commence between 1st January and 31st March, the deadline for notification of intention to attend must be submitted, in writing, by 31st May in the preceding year and the BDA's allocation of places will be notified, in writing, not later than 30 June in the preceding year.

The qualifying regattas from which results can be submitted will be such regional Championships as have been held by 30 June, together with the Edinburgh Cup of the year of application, and all qualifying regattas of the previous year. If at the deadline for applications for selection the numbers of applicants fall short of the allocation available for the BDA, the BDA Officers may, at their discretion, make further selections. Note: it is possible to qualify on the international circuit too - details on the IDA website - and such places are additional to the national allocation.
