Back to the fray as Summer approaches

The OK Dinghies in Ireland are emerging from their slumber.

With summer 2015 curtailed due to injury and pressures of work, and one of the windiest and wettest winters on record, the OK Dinghies have been stored out of harms way for a while.  First in a garden near Dun Laoghaire, more recently behind the stables of an old stately home in Kildare. And with the prospect of more arrivals in 2015, including one potential from New Zealand, perhaps we’ll finally see a proper fleet in 2016.


Covered, sheltered, dry

One of the impressive features of the winter, particularly for the all-wood Beastie, was the fact that she stayed bone dry inside all through. That Synergy cover and proper positioning seems to do the trick.

Onwards to the summer. No activity until after the lift-out, which itself isn’t until Easter, but they’re there and ready.

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.
