2019 OK Dinghy Worlds On Home Waters

Epic result for veteran Dan Slater (NZL) to come away with the win on home waters for the 2019 World Champs! It was great to see so many Kiwis on the water for the event too, hats off to the team!

Conditions were shifty and it was clear that, with a big fleet of 111 sailors, the start was key to pop out in front especially in the light airs.

C-Tech were proud to be a sponsor of the event and it was great to see over 50% of the top 30 finishers using C-Tech masts, 6 of which were in the top 10!

2017 OK Dinghy World Championships

Congratulations to Nick Craig who dominated the recent 2017 OK World Championships in Barbados using a C-Tech mast. Nick was quick with no result outside of the top 3 and six race wins. With changeable wind strength and a confused sea state Nick had the power he needed to get out at the start and power away from competition both upwind and downwind. Final results here
