Today we have reached more than 50 entries from eight different countries.
Poul Richard Hoi-Jensen, who has won many Worlds, Europeans and Dragon Gold Cup events has joined as well. He fosters warm memories to racing in Medemblik with the Race Management from the dedicated teams of Royal YC Hollandia.
We are very pleased to welcome Poul. Likewise, Poul is looking forward to sailing in Medemblik again.
It will be the 75th Dragon Gold Cup Event since 1937.
In the year the International Dragon Class will celebrate its 90th anniversary.
It will become a regatta with excellent racing guided by a very experienced local International Race Management Team that has managed Worlds, Europeans and pre-Olympics for many classes.
After racing we will gather in a friendly atmosphere around our Dragons in the Oosterhaven @ Brakeboer, the famous Medemblik Sailors Café where it all happens.
From breakfast to beer and protest committee.
The Dutch Dragon Association is proud to organise this 75th Dragon Gold Cup event again in Medemblik and at the IJsselmeer where the Dragon Gold Cup is hosted since 1965.
Many famous Dragon legends like Glenn Foster, Poul Richard Hoi Jensen and Fred Imhoff have been a Dragon Champion at the Medemblik waters.
It is the Dutch Training Center for future champions with a fully dedicated Race Management organisation of Royal Hollandia YC.
It is the best place in The Netherlands to show young champions what the Class is all about !
And…only 35 minutes by car from Amsterdam International (Schiphol) Airport and 30 minutes by car from the booming center of Amsterdam.
The event is scheduled 1 week before the Santa Lucia Festivities and part of the long weekend of Whit Sunday.
