Competitor Update No 1

Action Time on Entry, Ferries, Accommodation and Fun! 

Dear Dragon Friends

We are looking forward to welcoming the International Dragon Fleet to Cowes for the 2017 Dragon South Coast Championship and Edinburgh Cup from 8-15 July, and we hope that many of you will also stay on and race Cowes Week with us. Time is flying, and to take advantage of our special offers action is needed now on the following:

You have until the end of this month (30 April) to take advantage of the Early Bird reduced entry fee for the South Coasts and Edinburgh Cup.  If you are entering both events its a possible saving of £200 so well worth taking advantage of.  Click here for NOR and Entry info.

We have a very special 20% discount offer for Non GBR Dragons who would like to stay on for Cowes Week.  Click here for Cowes Week entry info.


For the Edinburgh Cup this year there will be an Official Measurer, Paul Manning.  It is essential that your read the Measurement Bulletin as there is pre-event and during event advice that must be followed.FERRY

As soon as you have entered you can request your special ferry discount codes to gain access to the special price for the Red Funnel ferry from Southampton to Cowes and to the 10% discount on Brittany Ferries crossings for the event. These routes can be very busy at this time of year so again book asap to ensure you get your choice of crossings.


Although Cowes has a great range of accommodation options, those closest to the waterfront always get booked up early so again it’s best to reserve early to avoid disappointment.  Check out our Accommodation listings at

If you need help to identify where a property is in relation to the event venues check out our Cowes Town Map.

Its worth noting that the Island Sailing Club will be providing a Launch Service from the clubhouse direct to/from Shepards Wharf Marina before and after sailing. So, if you take accommodation close to the clubhouse you could not only take advantage of an ISC Full English Breakfast but could collect your pack lunches AND could use the changing facilities and lockers to change into sailing kit whilst there.


And last but by no means least…
NOP Final 31 3 17
