Dublin Racing

Two OK Dinghies in one race

It’s been a while since we had both OK Dinghies on the water in the same race. Injury to one skipper, sadly.

But, with other sailors interested in trying the class we had both “Beastie” and “Return of the Milky Bar Kid” on the water this Tuesday. Sadly the race committee had an off night and the race results are a bit of a washout. The Milky Bar Kid is shown as winning by 4 minutes from second place, 11 minutes from 3rd and 14 minutes from the first Laser. Ehm.  Not even close. The race will likely eventually get tossed.

Results - but not right

Results – but not right

Being silly, we forgot to notify the race committee that Beastie was sailing with a reserve sail and a different sail number so she doesn’t appear in the results. Doh.

In any case it was a gorgeous evening and there’s more interest in the OK Dinghy from several of the laser heavyweights these days.

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.
