Fiberglass construction was introduced in the 1960s with great care taken by the class to ensure that the wood and glass yachts could race on an equal basis. Today, there are ten fleets racing around the world — Bermuda, Norway (combined fleets — Oslo &Tønsberg), the United Kingdom (St. Mawes, Falmouth), Sweden (Stenungsund), New York (two fleets — Larchmont and Fishers Island), Maine(Northeast Harbor), Massachusetts (two fleets — Marblehead and Nantucket) and California (San Francisco Bay). The newest IOD fleet is in Chester, Nova Scotia.
