Next up – 2014 Worlds in Melbourne!!

There are a few months to go yet, but preparations for the 2014 OK Dinghy Worlds in Melbourne are well under way. Fleets from Europe must decide whether to charter in Australia or to organize container shipping to bring their own boats to the other side of the world.  And fleets in the antipodes must decide which boats to let the visiting Europeans charter, and which to keep for themselves.

Black Rock Yacht Club has a long and proud history, founded in the 19th century, host to Moth and I14 World Championships as well as home of one of the world’s strongest OK Dinghy fleets.  The event, running from December 28th to Jan 4th, should continue the recent run of great events and the revival of the class.

The event website is up and running here, with a promotional video below that looks back at some previous occasions where Black Rock has hosted major OK Dinghy events. No better place!!  Even noted Kiwi Greg Wilcox seems to admit as much.

There’s a form on the website if you want to request a charter boat, plus information on accommodation and other practicalities.  Have a read, make your plans!

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.
