Frostbite Series 1 – broken but 2nd

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.

Don’t let go the tiller in a tack.

Repairs are pending.

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.
