The Dragon was a sailing event on the Sailing at the 1972 Summer Olympics program in Kiel-Schilksee. Seven races were scheduled. Only six races were sailed due to weather conditions. 69 sailors, on 23 boats, from 23 nation competed.[2] It was the last Olympic appearance of the Dragon.

Race schedule[3][edit]

Because of insufficient wind the scheduled race in the Dragon was postponed on 5 September 1972. Due to the interruption of the Games on 6 September 1972, the race was postponed till 7 September. Then the race conditions were unsuitable. Heavy fog and poor wind conditions made it not possible to race until September 8. Finally for the Dragon only six regattas took place. Also the medal ceremony was also postponed until 8 September.
