    How many lines are on your boat?

    She’s an interesting one. A Russian billionaire arrived in nz and spent up large including having this dragon built in 2008 in the Ukraine. His money dried up and the boat was passed around various team nz associates and eventually to a friend of mine that was owed money. I bought it from him 2 years ago for a tenth of what it cost. Until then it had been sailed only three times. They tried to make others Edition Vintage Dragon.pdf

    Etchells or Star for single handed cruising?

    I singlehanded cruise my Dragon most weeks. Mainly daysails. I fitted an outboard, mainly to get out of the river where I keep it, and an autohelm for manoeuvres. I absolutely love it.
