Bloomsday

The normal DBSC racing is occasionally replaced by a special regatta. This was the weekend for the Royal Alfred Yacht Club’s “Bloomsday Regatta”.

It was a glorious Saturday, for a change, and saw a good fleet of Lasers on their startline but a rather disappointing PY fleet for the OK Dinghy to take on. Nonetheless, the challenge was there and had to be faced.

Two races later, the trophy was won. Rather nice too.

To the victor - the platter

The racing itself was tactically challenging, with bigger and longer windshifts embedded within a pattern of small oscillating shifts. Get one wrong and you were in trouble!

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.
