The Dragon was originally designed in 1929 by Johan Anker in Norway as a small cruiser-racer. Its potential was quickly spotted and soon after it came first to the Clyde in the UK and then to Cowes. There has been an active fleet established in Cowes ever since.

The boat has come a long way since it original conception and has moved through a period of being an Olympic Class from 1948 to 1972 and onwards from there to becoming the largest one design keelboat fleet in the world with fleets in 26 Countries Worldwide.
