The updated OK dinghy world ranking was published by OKDIA and if featured honorable mention of two OKWiken sailors: Patric Mure for placing third at the UK nationals in July and Benjamin Hammerö for his third place in the Warenmünde also in July.
The third annual club championship took place on 23 July. The weather was overcast with a squalls and light winds. The conditions were challenging for the fleet and a good rehearsal for the upcoming OK Worlds. The first place was won by Stefan Jeanson from Varberg with an undisputed three first places.
