GPS says “go faster”

Getting back in the boat after a long lay-off is always a challenge. But GPS is there to help you see where you’re going slowly….which is too often.

Reviewing the last week’s races and comparing to a Finn, it’s clear that the OK can keep up most of the time, but that there are periods of sloth – particularly downwind in the first race.

Race 1 was banjaxed after an unyielding port tack boat forced the MBK into bad wind shadow on the approach to the first mark…but also by bad downwind speed.

Race 2 was a bit better…though there’s still a speed problem.

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.
