The Dragon European Championship

The Virginie Heriot Cup In memory of Madame Virginie Heriot and in accordance with her often expressed wish to encourage yachting, the Committee of the Yacht Club de France decided at a meeting on the 21st May 1946 to initiate an International Cup and name it the "Coupe Virginie Hériot".

The Cup is assigned to the International Dragon Class, but remains the property of the Yacht Club de France.


In agreement with the Committee of the International Dragon Class Association the "Virginie Heriot Cup" is the trophy of the European Dragon Championship.

The event was held annually for a period but from 2020 will be again held every even year, alternating with the World Championship.
