Championships & Regattas

National Championships and open International regattas are held annually by most fleets and reflect the character of the host country.

Venues range from Oostende to Austria, and from Alexandria to Hong Kong. The German Championships are as popular as they are

competitive, while the French entertain their visitors off the water as keenly as they challenge them on it.

The British, Canadians and Australians race for prestigious cups presented by the Duke of Edinburgh, and in Scandinavia competitors might find themselves hailing Denmark's Prince Henrik for water.

Club competition is quite exciting enough for many Dragon sailors, and as much satisfaction can be derived from winning a season-long trophy series through consistency and determination as from a week's regatta.

Most international helmsmen return to their local fleets to keep their hand in, where local knowledge and experience often levels the playing field for the regular club racers.
