It's all happening in the International OK Dinghy class at the moment with lots of new developments across the world. The class is growing almost exponentially. Here at Synergy we have also been developing our product and the time has come to replace our existing mould set. Over the last few months we have been working towards a new design closely based on our 2016 & 2017 World Championship winning design.
The game has moved forward for the class in terms of hull design, analysis of shapes and CNC machined plugs. With this in mind we are working with respected designer, Dave Hollom, to create our perfect OK Dinghy. Along with the top sailors currently in Synergy boats we will be incorporating some of the latest ideas.
The first stage has been working with SurfDev, who previously worked on the Petticrow Finn. Neale there has provided us with an exceptionally detailed 3D scan of our 2016 World Championship winning boat as a starting point. The new design will be finalised over the coming weeks and then we move forward with full CNC machined plugs.
Our aim is evolution rather than revolution but with some small but essential changes to the overall product. Orders are already coming in for the first batch of boats for delivery later this year. More soon!
