New Designs Excel at the OK Dinghy European Championship

Heavy winds started the week off, as the Mistral blew through Bandol, leaving a mixed sea state, creating very physical sailing conditions for the OK dinghy fleet. As the week went on the conditions eased off, testing the sailors each day to eventually separate the leader from the fleet.

North Sails One Design expert Charlie Cumbley fought hard until the very end. Leading the fleet coming into the final day, points were extremely tight between the top three players on the field. Charlie scored a 2-15 on the final day, putting him in second place behind Fredrik Loof. In third place, trailing by just one point, was Swedish sailor, Thomas Hanson-Mile. Between Thomas and Charlie, they won six out of the eight races sailed.

Finishing thirteenth overall and becoming the new Junior European Champion was Will Heritage. All three of the sailors mentioned above were using the new development sail in the North Sails inventory. This model is a flatter version of the KAP-1, its performance has proved to be fast and versatile so far and will compliment the KAP-1 as part of the North Sails inventory.

“Based on the world winning KAP-1 it was designed specifically for sailors 90 kg and under. Providing plenty of power, but making it more forgiving in the stronger breeze. In Bandol we had a variety of conditions, it was still powerful in the lighter conditions but was much easier to de-power on the windy first day.”
