Dear Dragon sailors,

In about eight months we look forward welcoming you to Marstrand – the wonderful island on the Swedish west coast which has been the scene for many famous regattas over the years. In Dragon Gold Cup context, it will be the 10th time we host the magical event in Sweden.

Though we are experiencing dark times both in terms of the pandemic and because of the Nordic season, we are all looking forward to the bright times of August when the sun shines and the warm wind blows. More than ever we need to close our eyes and imagine ourselves on the water sailing one of the world’s most beautiful boat.

As the organizing committee, we are very happy to see the big interest in next years event. To date, we have 51 pre-registrations and we have set our limit to 100 boats lying in the harbor. Should you know of more Dragon sailors that you think should be here in August 2021, please spread the word to register right here on the campaign website.

In the coming weeks we will release the Notice of Race and we ask you to keep an eye here for any additional information and inspiration. You can also follow us on Instagram where we publish news and stories.

We pray for you to be safe and wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
