Thomas Hansson-Mild choose Danish built OK Dinghy
Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE) one of the fastest OK dinghy sailors since 20 years and the world champion in 2009 have chosen the Danish company Vejle Yacht Service to deliver his new designed OK dinghy for his 2016 campaign.
“I always had great confidence and good experience in the Delf construction and with the design ideas from Thomas Egeskov, who presented them last year, it was a natural choice for me to buy one of their new designed OK dinghies. We appreciate a new boat builder in the OK Class, who can deliver competitive designs and very high quality, says Thomas Hansson-Mild”.
“We have received international and positive attention on our new design. The project started back in 2014, when we launched three prototypes in early 2015 and with our investment in a new Delf mould, we are able to deliver to sailors and meet the growing demand from international OK dinghy sailors. Our design strategy is to develop a high-tech and very fast hull using new and light materials in advanced mould processes. Optimisation and improvements of the hull design and our tests, we are using the experience from the OK dinghy sailors in Hellerup Yacht Club in Denmark, who are very active and deliver International results.
Thomas Hansson-Mild have given us great feed-back and changes to our design ideas and we look forward to a very exciting season, says Thomas Egeskov fra Vejle Yacht Service”.
