First Swedish race of the 2022 season

Göran Andersson OK-jolle cup on 23-24 April was the Swedish season starter. The unseasonably warm Easter weekend weather was boosted with a dose of high wind mixed with shifts. The racing took place just outside Strandverket on sheltered water and not on the 2022 World’s venue on Marstrandsfjorden. It was simply too windy!

The OKWiken sailors did very well and place in top ten – BIG congratulations!

2nd – Benjamin Hammerö
4th – Tomas Franzen
8th – Håkan Söderberg
9th – Peter Hörwing

Easter training in Viken

There were frantic activities on the water outside Viken all days of the Easter weekend. Ample possibilities for all sailors to maximise the on water training. We had Tomas Hansson-Mild join as a distinguished guest sailor a few of the days.
On Easter Sunday a total of 11 OK dinghies were on the water at the same time. 3-4 m/s and sunshine from clear blue skies made us all think of July rather than early spring.
