Strong winds prevented racing taking place for the last two weekends, but the calendar moved ahead anyway and we’ve reached the end of Series 1 of the 2013/2014 DMYC Frostbites. The sole OK Dinghy finished 2nd in the series. Results here.
It was a messy series for the OK Dinghy team. With one skipper still out of action due to knee problems (non-sailing related) and the other boat missing its maststep, a quick swap was arranged in order to allow the intact boat to sail with the intact skipper. A good solution, but mast and sail mis-match impacted speed potential, making it harder to win races. Then, in one of the abandoned races, the MBK returned with a new maststep but was almost immediately damaged when the skipper did something silly.
Repairs are pending.
