9th - 14th JUNE 2019 - Yanmar - DRAGON GOLD CUP 2019

Organisation Comittee


The Dragon Gold Cup 2019 is a joint-venture between the Dutch Dragon Association (Organising Authority on behalf of the International Dragon Association) and RYC Hollandia as facilitating yacht club with its specialised Race Management Teams in Medemblik for the racing areas of the Regatta Center in Medemblik. The Royal Netherlands Yacht Club assists both the RYC Hollandia and Dutch Dragon Association. They provide additional volunteers ashore, additional experienced teams with RIBs to set the lines and provide rescue services if needed and yachts as RC boats. All financial affairs are handled by a separate legal entity with a separate board, called Stichting Activities International Dragon Class.

The Dutch Dragon Association is very grateful for all this support on a non-commercial and voluntary basis.
