Why keep sailing the OK Dinghy?Some of the most competitive racing around on the water, but a great social time after!
Anything else you can think of that might be of interest?The OK doesn't require a full time campaign, not a one design so allows people of different size and weight to be competitive, making racing closer then many perceived 'premier' one design classes
