Raymarine sponsors the International OK Dinghy World Championship in 2023
After a very successful World Championship in Marstrand, Sweden, where 115 sailors from 11 countries participated for the coveted World Championship title, won by British sailor Charlie Cumbley, it is now the turn of the British to host the next World Championship in Lyme Regis.
Considerable interest has already been shown for the event which is to be held at the end of June 2023, with many European and antipodean sailors booking their accommodation now in preparation for the event.
Postponed from 2022, the preparations for the regatta are at an advanced stage and both the host Lyme Regis Sailing Club and the British Association of the OK dinghy are looking forward to welcoming sailors from all over the world.
Sponsorship of a Championship always adds to the experience for sailors who have prepared thoroughly and travelled considerable distances to share the moment.
Raymarine is the first sponsor to support the event. They write:

Welcome to Lyme Regis
The English coastline no longer repels invaders; instead we invite you to Lyme Regis to enjoy more tranquil pursuits.
You can take bracing walks along the Cobb, eat delicious fish and chips, search for marine life in the rock pools or the ancient fossils in the cliffs, build sandcastles on sandy beaches sail out of the picturesque harbour at Lyme Regis and experience the wind and waves of Lyme Bay.
If you have the time, spend a little longer in the UK and walk the longest trail in the world – the England Coastal Path which now promises access to the country’s entire coastline.
