Join us in welcoming new member Ryan James who is no stranger to Dragons, having grown up sailing with his Dad Tommy.
The final prize celebrating the 85th year of the Dragon goes to Jamie Leopold of Burlington VT. Jamie wins a Gill 25L dry bag with the Dragon 85th logo. Jamie is a long time lover of Dragons (his parents sailed Dragons) and is currently sailing on a harder surface (frozen Lake Champlain). Congrats Jamie!
The November 2014 issue of Yachting World has a good synopsis of Gerda's Sea Saga, a book from the early 50s about sailing a Dragon from Harwich to Norway. Wild weather and a crew of two pumping and surviving on rum and malted chocolates. Book is hard to find but looks like a ripping yarn!
Anne Garrett is the National Secretary for the American Dragon Association and has been sailing and racing Dragons since the early 80s.
