OK Dinghies – fun but not really for two

A glorious Easter Sunday saw no racing, most people concentrating on chocolate and mass, and only a few boats out on Dun Laoghaire Harbor. But the OKs were out there.

While “Beastie” did some proper practice, the skipper of “MBK” concentrated more on messing with his kids. Fun, but there really isn’t space in an OK Dinghy to have two people on board so eventually they went back to their own boat. But not until they tried a couple of man-overboard exercises, various ways of tacking and gybing and a couple of other adventures.

A great day.

(p.s. we applied faceblur to the video ‘cos the kids are in it. faceblur ain’t pretty…but it seemed sensible.)

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.
