The 71st British Dragon National Championship at South Caernarfonshire Yacht Club (SCYC) is set to be four days of thrilling keelboat racing in the waters of North Wales.

The home SCYC Dragon fleet will be joined by visiting Dragons from Ireland, Turkey and all four corners of the country. Following the two-day Northern Championship, Abersoch will see local experts race together against regional champions, past national champions; Martin Payne, Julia Bailey and Martin Byrne and current reigning champion Graham Bailey in the Haulfryn Edinburgh Cup.

This National Championship is embracing the future and growth of Dragon sailing with the introduction of a brand-new trophy and special entry offers.

Earlier this year Gavia Wilkinson-Cox donated the Seagull Trophy to the British Dragon Association with the aim to promote female Dragon helms, giving an added edge to the competition of Dragon one-design racing. From this July the Seagull Trophy will be presented to the top lady Corinthian helm annually at the Edinburgh Cup.

There is also steps to encourage youth sailors to the world of Dragon sailing. SCYC, in conjunction with the British Dragon Association, are funding and supplying a Dragon to enter the Haulfryn Edinburgh Cup. There is a full package available with training, boat, mooring, sails and entry all covered.

The Edinburgh Cup has successfully been held in Abersoch at the SCYC in 1962, 69, 76, 82, 88, 2011 and 2016. Now in its 71st year the Edinburgh Cup remains a championship with a great deal of history. It has always been difficult to win and is revered by those who have won many other competitions and events.

Following in these footsteps, entry to this years Haulfryn Edinburgh Cup is free to any all-female teams bit.ly/EdCup2019
