Seasons greetings

Merry Christmas and a happy new year

Dear fellow Dragon sailors past and present. How quickly our first real season after Covid seems to have passed by, but with many special memories of the friends met at the various events this year.

Bertie is tucked away in the barn for the winter but we are already planning our 2023 season which is shaping up to be a very special one for UK Dragons. I hope to see as many of you as possible at the AGM and dinner in January and on the water through the season.

– Simon Barter, BDA Chairman
