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.
