Henri-Lloyd is excited to announce their support of the Dragon Gold Cup 2021 in Marstrand, Sweden, taking place between 12-20 August.

  • Henri-Lloyd will be an Official Partner and the Official Clothing Supplier to the Dragon Gold Cup 2021 this summer.
  • All Race Officials and Participants will be kitted out with Henri-Lloyd clothing.
  • Exclusive Dragon Gold Cup 2021 Merchandise will be available to purchase, including a made-to-order Consort Gore-Tex® Jacket.

The Dragon Gold Cup 2021 is one of the oldest and most prestigious trophies in one-design sailing. Historically around 100 international teams enter the regatta, and this year will mark the tenth time the event has been hosted in Sweden.

As an Official Partner and the Official Clothing Supplier to the event, Henri-Lloyd will supply kit for all Race Officials and Participants. Anywhere between 10-25 knots of breeze can be expected for the open water venue in August and all 45 Race Officials will be kitted out on the water in the Gore-Tex® Fremantle Hood Jacket and Technical Shorts.

Exclusive Dragon Gold Cup 2021 Merchandise will also be available to purchase, including a special edition made-to-order Consort Gore-Tex® jacket.

Chairman of the Swedish Dragon Association, Christoffer Meyer: "The organising authority is honoured and excited to have the legendary sailing brand Henri-Lloyd as an Official Supplier to the Dragon Gold Cup 2021. We share the value and passion for the Dragon Class and look forward to this partnership together with our fellow sailors and the community of Marstrand."

A temporary Henri-Lloyd 'pop-up' store open weekends throughout the August - and every day of the event - will be located in the town, the sailing capital of Sweden.

Chairman Hans Eckerström is familiar with the Marstrand waters; in 2019 Henri-Lloyd were the title sponsor of the Frostbite Challenge and entered two race teams. Hans will enjoy racing in the warmer climate this summer, as he helms the Maverick yacht in the regatta.

"I am excited to announce that Henri-Lloyd will be the Official Clothing Supplier to the Dragon Gold Cup 2021 on my home waters of Marstrand, Sweden. We love to give back to the sailing community and are eager to show the Dragon community our sustainable, innovative, and great quality sailing brand. We have big plans for the event so please look out for the Maverick yacht, which I will helm and aim for a memorable and successful regatta together with all other sailors."
