The cloggie revival. Websites, events, hulls and now masts too!

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!

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.
