OK Dinghy Winter Championship warm-up for Barbados

Nick Craig had few problems winning the 2017 British OK Dinghy Winter Championship on Saturday at Alton Water in Suffolk.

Craig talked about how the Winter Championship was a crucial part of his training and what the sailors could expect, having sailed the GP14 Worlds there last year.

In winning the Winter title, Craig only really dominated in one race, but was the clear winner.

In Barbados at the end of May he is aiming to become the first sailor to win five OK Dinghy World titles.

The Winter Championship attracted 17 entries from far and wide, including many new faces sailing their first OK open, and most of those were in new boats.

It was a gentle start to the season with 5-8 knots of wind and moderate temperatures, but the racing was tight and the field competitive.

The top three are all heading to Barbados for the worlds.
