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.
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.
