The event kicks off with Registration and an Opening Reception on September 10th, followed by three days of racing in English Bay. True to Dragon tradition, good racing will be followed by good social events, so the Vancouver Fleet has planned a number of after-race events. Visitors to Vancouver can expect mild sunny days with good sea breezes.
The International Dragon is a technically demanding yacht combining classic lines with 21st century technology. A strong Class Association ensures competitive one-design racing for all ages of boat. Spars and sails have a wide range of adjustment during racing, allowing a skillful crew to optimize the boat for any conditions. Crew weight limits, and restrictions on hiking out allow the Dragon to be raced successfully by a range of ages and genders. The Dragon Class is active in 30 countries in 5 Continents and has 1420 registered boats.
