Sail change – and lightwind tune

The 2012 worlds saw a wide variety of hulls in the top 10, but a strong domination of Quantum and – to a lesser extent  – Green sails, with Nick Craig’s HD Sails the only outlier in the top 10. This domination may be about to weaken. A little, anyway.

A recent event in Denmark saw some leading Danes successfully change to North Sails and also the first appearance of the Hoj-Jensen sails that are being developed with Jorgen Lindthartsen.

The Hoj-Jensen sails are still being developed so they were pleased to be competitive and will continue to work on the sails. A full report on the event is here (sadly Google Translate doesn’t deal well with Danish).

It was a light wind event and there were lots of photos, so this video should answer any questions you ever had about light wind tune.

About the site

The IOKDA (Irish OK Dinghy Association) website is hosted on Wordpress.com.

The aim of the site is multiple; to increase visibility of the OK Dinghy in Ireland, to create a central communications point for OK dinghy sailors - and those interested in the OK Dinghy - on the island of Ireland, to create a communications point for OK Dinghy sailors in other countries, and to be available for non-sailors to understand the OK Dinghy and the activities in Ireland.

The IOKDA will maintain this site for the foreseeable future. We may someday decide to move to our own domain. If so, this site will be permanently maintained as a redirect notice.

Whether you call an OK DInghy an OK-Jolle or an OK-Jol or anything else, this site aims to have useful info. However, note that the information here is not offered with ANY guarantee of accuracy. Check all event information with the event organizers. Check all supplier information with the suppliers. And so on.
