Gone kiting

A number of factors have conspired over the last year to reduce the amount of OK Dinghy sailing going on. And the factors aren’t going away any time soon.

The Laser class in Dun Laoghaire has decided that they’ll only race against other Lasers. No other single handed dinghies welcome. Which leaves the OK trying to stay intact while sharing a race-course with the IDRA14 fleet. No fun.

Plus, with a third member of the family taking up kiting, there’s been more and more time hooked into kite-lines and less and less time hiking out.

Plus, with no interest from the wider community in the OK Dinghy, it’s time for a pause.

Meantime, here’s what we’re at.

Have fun. We are.

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.
