General News/Update


As usual, the class AGM was held during the Worlds. The class is healthy and growing around the world, with the most recent set of building plans going to Hong Kong.  Quite a few new boats were built in the last two years. The nice thing about OK Dinghies is that a new boat can expect to be active – and competitive – for decades. Old boats rarely if ever die.

There will also be a special meeting (the SGM mentioned in the title) to address a couple of points raised at the AGM but not closed. The main issue is around UHM carbon masts and the need to licence mast builders.

See the documents attached. They actually make interesting reading!

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.
