Beastie on Film – Pretty AND Fast

Beastie’s skipper has had a frustrating winter and spring trying to get back on the water after a long lay off. Too many weekends with 25knot+ forecasts. But it’s Spring now and she’s had two good days on the water this weekend. Easter Monday saw the MBK working mostly as a camera boat to get some views of Beastie and the sail in action.

While we can now definitely say that none of the sails Beastie has are at all matched to Beastie’s soft Boyce mast, it’s also pretty clear that Beastie is a quick little boat, at least for a lightweight.

And DAMN, it’s a pretty boat.

But, while we knew there was a need for a new sail to allow for the skipper’s mere 60kg weight, a new sail is just needed anyway. And the boat will fly!

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.
