A couple of months ago we mentioned the new Danish builder, Strandberg Marine.
We hear from Denmark that the boats are selling very well, with 11 boats already sold to Denmark, Australia and Sweden. Several will be at the worlds in Thailand in a couple of months so there will be a clear indication of where they are on speed.
Meantime, the boats certainly look tasty…..although perhaps some more colorful paint jobs would brighten things up! Finns do seem to get brighter color schemes than OK Dinghies.
Combined with the ongoing development efforts at Hoj-Jensen Sails, it looks as if the Danes are determined to get themselves back in charge in the world rankings!
The class now has high grade builders in half a dozen countries…each striving to build the perfect OK Dinghy.
