The OK class are looking forward to competing for their Scottish Championship and the second part of their Border Trophy, both of which will be sailed for at East Lothian Yacht Club as part of their regatta, which is being held 1 and 2 June.

Part 1 of the Border Trophy was raced for at Ullswater YC, and points from that event and the ELYC Regatta will be combined to award the Border Trophy.

The fleet is growing in Scotland and it's great to see a double digit entry for the ELYC Regatta and our Scottish Championship. The class has recently invested in a second demo boat, which is located in Scotland and has already encouraged new recruits to the class. Karen Robertson is the Class Chair and will be one of the competitors at ELYC.
