The Canadian Dragon Championship was held the weekend of September 3-5. Congrats to the 2016 Champion Jim Burns helming Ayrborn CAN145, with crew Glenn Jones and Chuck Ramsay. Jim was awarded the Duke of Edinburgh Trophy which was given the the Canadian Yachting Association in 1953 by the Duke. A small but competitive fleet, including one visiting crew from the Great Lakes had two good days of racing on English Bay - one day with no wind, one day of typical westerlies and one day of challenging South Easteries out of the Bay. Thanks to the Royal Vancouver YC for hosting.
Anne Garrett is the National Secretary for the American Dragon Association and has been sailing and racing Dragons since the early 80s.
