Dublin Racing

Chicken Cormorants

Back to normality with Dun Laoghaire Harbor, sheltered from the main winds on Dublin Bay, showing 49 knot gusts. Even the cormorants were hiding from the breeze in the few sheltered corners of the harbor. Lucky for them the sailing was cancelled because their refuge is right where the OK Dinghy and many others launch from.

Scaredy Cat Cormorants.

The sun was still shining, as the overview shows, but nothing with a sail dared venture out.

Dublin Bay - not a sail in sight

So, three of 4 weeks lost so far in 2014. But the sailors persist and live in hope!

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.
