2011 Dragon Class Rules and Regulations

The 2011 Regulations are now available on the website. It is obviously the responsibility of sailors to read these documents, but to try to be a little helpful, I would like to point out a number of important issues.

World and European Championship Rules

These have been changed. The intention is to clarify qualification criteria and to define how entries should be accepted (this becomes important when there are more potential entries than available places at the event). In 2011, the only event this applies to is the European Championship at Boltenhagen. You can access these via the Rules and Regulations section of the website.

Class New Graphic Identity

By now you should all be aware of the new Graphic Identity that has been adopted. It appears at the top of this announcement and at the top of our website. It is bold, clean and simple and as such will be used universally, on sails, on stationery, on merchandise etc etc and also throughout the world. All NDA’s are fully informed. The way to adopt this identity (particularly helpful for those organising regattas at any level) is fully explained in Part IV of the Class Regulations. For any queries, go direct to branding @ intdragon.org

Class Regulations (How we run the Class)

The old “Regatta Regulations” have now been renamed as “Regulations”. This simply recognises their wider application, now having 5 separate sections
I Organising a Regatta
II Regatta Race Management
III Championship Rules, NOR, SI, Entry Forms, etc
IV Dragon Class Graphic Identity
V International and National Ranking Lists

I would like to highlight additional restrictions on coachboats for 2011 – see Sailing Instruction No.20.2 on page 62. This follows strong representations from many of you.

Class Rules (Our Technical Rules)

The IDA has agreed a number of minor changes and these have been submitted to ISAF. We await their approval and will post the changes as soon as they are formally approved.
