Class Rules and Plans

The intention of these Rules is to ensure that the boats have as identical a preformance as possible.

This shall be achieved by consideration of but not exclusively hull shape, weight, weight distribution and sail plan.

The construction of the hull, and the sparts, sails and rigging are controlled by these Rules.


These regulations are for use at principal Championships and Major Regattas of the Class, but also can be used for general guidance at other Dragon Regattas.

Their purpose is to provide directions and advice for yacht clubs and other organisations in preparing for major Dragon Championships and regattas around the world.
