The current Class Rules (2015) are also there

http://www.sailing.org/tools/documents/OKD2015CR080415-%5B18742%5D.pdf

Please be aware of the new Rules regarding Personal Sail Numbers and the requirement for all newly registered boats to be numbered sequentially

​ in each country. This supersedes any ​previously used system.

Weight distribution testing
This has been a hot topic of late

​ with a lot of discussion and, in Denmark, testing. To try and clarify OKDIA's position, the Technical Committee has released a statement, which can be found here.

World Championships 2015

Entries are coming in fast for this year's World Championship in Puck, Poland. Please enter (at okworlds.org) as soon as possible if you plan to​ attend so that the organisers know how many boats to expect. I remind everyone it is open entry so anyone can go but entry fees should still be payable through National Associations.

OKDIA Magazine

The new OKDIA International magazine is almost ready to be published. There is still space for a few last items or advertisements, so please contact publicity@okdia org. The Media Pack can be downloaded at:
