The Beast is back!

Finally “Beastie” got back on the water. After multiple days with too much wind and MBK forced to sail alone, at least “Beastie” got on the water today. The MBK didn’t, with sick kids the cause, but it was great to see the wooden wonder back at sea.

The skipper hadn’t been on the water since November, and that was the first day for a while too! With her 60kg weight she was a bit overpowered upwind, but downwind was fine and gybes were unexpectedly smooth and trouble free.

The race fleets sailed around in the background and several sailors were delighted to see “Beastie” back in the game.

We do need to sort out a smaller sail for Beastie so that the wind limit doesn’t have to be so low, but in any event the Beast is back

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.
