With the skipper of the wooden “Beastie” having been out injured for a long time and the skipper of the “Milky Bar Kid” suffering from lack of pace, it was time for some two-boat training.
Saturday saw great conditions and two OK Dinghies training around inside Dun Laoghaire harbor. Gybes, tacks, and upwind trim were the main focus and lots of progress was made. The pair even got in some “weaving” practice as the cruiser fleets returned to the harbor after their Saturday racing. The hard work was followed by a beautiful, scenic and entirely gratuitous cruise out to “Boyd”, one of the DBSC racing marks in the middle of Dublin Bay.
It was a good day. No racing, just the fun of sailing an OK Dinghy.
