Registered Boats

The Dragon Class is actively represented in 31 countries in 5 Continents. There were 1360 boats registered with the National Associations in 2019.

There are many more, perhaps the same number again, which are not currently registered, and which are used for day sailing or cruising, or in store ashore. The Class regularly gets 70-80 boats at World Championships which are held in every odd year.

The European Championships are held every even year and a limit of 60 boats is imposed.

The Gold Cup which can only be held in certain specified European countries, is unique in that all six races count without discard.

It is held annually and has attracted over 100 entries, usually starting in one fleet.
