Dragonfly (17271)

Name Origin: Dragonfly was painted for a cigarette video commercial filmed in Thailand. .While sailing for the first time in the Northwest it was said "boy these dragons sure do fly". The name stuck and she has been called Dragonfly ever since.
She has been sailing with the same crew since 1999, a mix of Canadian and Americans.
Crew Adventures: Many great rides and lots of fantastic adventures aboard this fantastic multihull.
Racing History: Dragonfly is returned after a "pitchpole" during the 2015 Round the County Race with a new mast and rigging due to breaking the previous one during the capsize and having to cut the rig away. In the 2017 RTC she placed first overall. A great welcome back to this event.
