About Us

Dragon Edinburgh Cup

40 keelboats expected

40 yachts racing off Torquay

Competitors from around a dozen nations will contest this tightly fought national championship for the 29ft International Dragon keelboat class in the waters of Torbay. The entry list includes some of the biggest international names in yacht racing, including Olympic medallists, round the world race veterans, and amateur sailors who are at the top of their sport. Each boat is sailed by a team of three or four people, with a strict maximum weight limit of 285kg. Teams include sailors of all ages, from teenagers upwards, and both men and women.

The coveted trophy was presented to the class in 1949 by HRH by the Duke of Edinburgh. Since then it has been awarded to the winner of the British Open National Championship for the Dragon Class.
