Aldeburgh Yacht Club are pleased to have been asked to host this year's British Classic and Vintage Championship on the 15th to 17th June with sponsorship from Demon Yachts.

Classic Dragons are those carvel planked boats built before 1975 and the Vintage fleet comprises all GRP, Cold Moulded and strip planked Dragons built in 1993 or before. The event will feature a formal dinner in the newly extended AYC clubhouse on the Friday evening and an informal supper in the clubhouse in conjunction with the Classics Weekend on the Saturday. We would also like to thank Adnams for their help in providing prizes for the winning boats in each category.

Entry forms and Notice of Race can be found on the AYC website, www.aldeburghyc.org.uk
