Sail-World.com : International OK Dinghy UK Nationals - Light airs shorten regatta

International OK Dinghy UK Nationals - Light airs shorten regatta

'International OK Dinghy National Championships 2011 at Largs'    Alan Henderson - copyright

International OK Dinghy National Championships 2011 were held at Largs Sailing Club in Largs, Scotland between 19th and 21st July.

On the final day of the Championships the weather system affecting much of the UK again took its toll on the days racing. The race team did venture out on time but the fleet were held back on shore in the hope that some wind would fill in. Some wind did appear and many launched and headed out to the race area. However, with only a maximum of 3 knots recorded all day eventually the decision was taken to abandon. Competitors were not too disappointed as enough races had been sailed to constitute a series and all are thoroughly enjoying what this top class venue has to offer.

The results from Tuesday’s excellent day on the water had resulted in Nick Craig (GBR) once again becoming OK National Champion. Second place and first veteran went to Kiwi Greg Wilcox who was actually born in the UK and third Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE). These three are all past OK World Champions and will surely be in the mix for next weeks World title. First Cadet title was won by 15 year old Ollie Burrows (GBR) with the Junior title going to the ever improving Richard Burton (GBR) who finished eleventh overall. Unfortunately this was not quite good enough for Richard to win his £20 bet with Tony Woods (GBR) who finished one place better in tenth. The final title of first Master went again to the unflappable Andy Turner (GBR).

The prize giving took place in the large clubhouse lounge overlooking the Clyde and the islands beyond. Nick Craig thanked the race team for setting perfect courses and the amazing shore team who even mended a few trolleys whilst sailors were on the water. He also thanked the excellent galley and bar staff for keeping everyone fed and watered. Competitors, family and club members then enjoyed an excellent barbecue on the balcony.

Two days of measurement for the Worlds will start early tomorrow morning with the practice race and opening ceremony on Sunday. Worlds racing starts on Monday with everyone hoping for more wind.
