OK Dinghy Winter Championship International OK Dinghy Association - copyright http://www.okdia.org/
16 Brave OK sailors arrived at a rather wet and grey King George Sailing Club for the 2011 Winter Championships.

Race 1 started in around 8-10 knots of breeze. Nick Craig made the best of the start to lead at the windward mark closely followed by Terry Curtis, Tony Woods and Ireland's Tim Goodbody. Craig maintained his lead with Curtis getting close at times, but not managing to Pass as the breeze died off. Woods came through to challenge for second, but ultimately finished third. Goodbody went off to feed the ducks on the far right of the third beat and never found a way back. Andy Turner, 2010 Winter Champ, came in fourth. T

wo races were held back to back after lunch in a patchy four-five knots. Tony Woods lead race 2 at the windward mark, but was slowly reeled in by both Craig and Goodbody with Curtis swamped by the pack down the run. Neil Goodhead showed his light airs expertise to come in fourth after an average first beat.

Woods made the third race his own from the start with Curtis in pursuit. Craig pulled his way through the fleet in the fast evaporating breeze finally overhauling Curtis at the bottom of the last reach with a shameless roll gybe to the mark, Ian Harris came in fourth.

Thanks must go to the team at King George sailing club for hosting the event and making the most of the uninspiring conditions. Craig was a worthy winner with Tony Woods taking a well earned second from Curtis, Tim Goodbody was fourth breaking a four way tie with Turner, Harris and Goodhead.
