Description 

Wanderer was built by Borresen in 1968 and originally commissioned as Crazy VI for Mr Johnsen of Norway with a sail number of N240.

In late 1969 she was exported to Hong Kong taking on the sail number of HKG6 and raced within the harbour there until 2007, winning many races. When imported into the UK she was the subject of a restoration by the current owner who had her hull fibreglass sheathed and systems updated.

Wanderer has been raced in the West Country as well as in the Solent with her current owner and still sports an original wooden spruce mast.

Sitting on a barely used RM road trailer, Wanderer is ready to take part in classic regattas or be upgraded for international dragon racing.

History - Dragon Class

The Dragon one design keelboat was first designed in 1929 by Johan Anker of Norway. By 1948 the Dragon class had become an Olympic class and remained so until the 1972 Munich Olympics. Without question, the Dragon has elegant metre boat lines with a long keel and, for the first 43 years, they were built from a wood construction. 

The class has continued to grow and in early 1973 they started building GRP Dragons, with the same beautiful line as the wooden sisterships. Dragon fleets are represented in 26 countries on 5 continents with some of the best sailors in the world taking part in world class sailing. 

It was recorded that in 2004 some 1,444 Dragon boats were registered around the world, with the International Dragon Association managing class rules carefully to ensure the continued high quality of both boats and crew taking part in major events.
