Phil Ward, of Vickeburg MI has bought an old Dragon made by Anker & Jensen. It has a builder's plaque but no clues as to a sail number. We were in contact with the Dragon Association in Norway and their records indicate that this was a late 1934 build which was probably shipped directly to North America. The local story is that the previous owner, Fred A. Karsten had her on Green Lake WI and was the commodore of the Green Lake YC IN 1967. When he died, the Dragon was given to his son who subsequently lost it in a poker game to the boat stoarage owner. The current name on the transom is "Heritage".
Anne Garrett is the National Secretary for the American Dragon Association and has been sailing and racing Dragons since the early 80s.
