Dear Dragon sailors, welcome to Vilamoura Sailing events
It’s an enormous pleasure to welcome you to the Dragon Cup Vilamoura 2020
In such a challenging period in our lives, with many of us locked in our homes, sailing was missed. Many sailing events got canceled around the World and the Dragon sailing season was looking lost. Vilamoura Sailing with 8D Sailing joined efforts to make a super re-start of sailing season. We extended in number of sailing days, one of our Algarve Dragon Winter Cup events and renamed it Dragon Cup Vilamoura.
