When you Arrive

You can bring your Dragon to the Yacht Club at any time during the week before the championships but, because of tides, it must be launched by 14:00 on Friday 9th September.

Please contact Toby Atack to arrange a time slot on 07815 849553

Visiting Dragons will be allocated a mooring

At the end of sailing on Sunday only visiting Dragons will be lifted out. Once on your mooring a RIB will tow your boat to the travel hoist ready to be lifted out.
