General News/Update

Sunny but not windy!

Finally back on the water at the same time as a race is on! This time the Milky Bar kid was about an hour early – having misread the sailing instructions. Hey ho.  There was a desperate need to practice and the time was used very productively.

Then the wind started to fade. Dublin bay is semi-circular so seabreezes are fickle things, and today we got fickle. Steady in direction, apart from a gradual right drift, but very weak.



The first race saw the Milky Bar kid messing around a little too far from the line once the postponement came down, only getting back to the startline at least 90 seconds after the rest of the PY fleet.  But having spent time getting used to the conditions, the OK Dinghy was in 2nd on the water by the windward mark and passed the K1 down the run to take line honors. And with all the other boats giving time, it’s a win for sure.

2nd race was more or less the same, apart from being on time to the start, and the K1 being tuned in as well. The K1 was first on the water by a few seconds, with the OK Dinghy second. Corrected time should see the OK dinghy leading the way.

No video, unfortunately. Pilot error. Doh.

Summer’s here.

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.
