Notes

Based on the Irish Dinghy Racing Association (IDRA) 14 Footer, some 40 Dragonflies were built on the River Deben, for the Waldringfield Sailing Club. Built between 1940’s and 50’s, a number of the original Dragonflies are still actively raced at Waldringfield Sailing Club. (Displacement is an estimate)
