No passing to windward

As a general rule, the skipper of the MBK won’t let people overtake to windward. He warns, politely, that he can point REALLY high if needed and then the overtaking boat has to make its own decisions.

It’s a long established policy. Boats from Spain to Zeeland, much of the UK and several parts of Ireland have wondered why the policy is maintained with such vigor.

Well, last weekend policy enforcement was slack. But it provided a good reminder of why the policy is there….

See – no more passing to windward.

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.
