Of course Rob Coutts, CA ,President, USA 9 and James Bland TX, Executive Secretary, USA 8 [NZL 585] are all signed up. Rob has found the sister boat, a Pedersen? design, ISAF 1841 / NZL 518 a sister to NZL515 which I sailed in the last Worlds and Rob won the 2005 ? Worlds in India.
I was given a 1972 USOKDRA newsletter. In that newsletter, you could read of growing fleets, over 800 registered boats and new members added by the score. It’s time to regain that participation.
US OK Dinghy Racing Association has not collected dues for a few years, so the cupboard is kind of bare. Memberships and donations are necessary to pay for administrative items, prepare for the Nationals, and start to look at low level advertising in the Harken Showcase or Scuttlebutt online. Participation at any level is appreciated.
