Them cloggies are a funny bunch. For them, being normal is being crazy enough. That’s what they say, more or less, although perhaps the opposite is more accurate. For a Dutchman, being crazy is quite normal. But however crazy they may be, the revival in the OK Dinghy fleet has taken a real jump.
The class website has long been a model of clarity and good information. The 2015 Easter regatta in Loosdrecht is going to have OK Dinghies visiting from all over Europe, adding to the long success of the Spring Cup in Medemblik. There’s an online shop with the possibility to buy ANOTHER type of plywood homebuilt OK Dinghy.
And now it seems that a previously dominant OK Dinghy mast builder – Ceilidh Masts – is going to rejoin the fray with three standard mast designs. From <75 kg to >85kg, there’ll be a mast for everyone.
We’re jealous we are!
