Dublin Racing

Training together

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.

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.
