Membership

The Osprey Class Association invites you to join.

Here are some of the things which the Association does on behalf of its members;

  • Organises class circuits and Championships
  • Organises  training days
  • Communicates with members and public via Class website, Forum and Facebooks etc
  • Publicises the class in yachting press and websites, and at the RYA Dinghy Show
  • Provides measurement certificates
  • Maintains class records and trophies
  • Advertises Ospreys for sale
  • Underpins the value of your Osprey

When you are racing your boat you need a valid Measurement Certificate. For the Measurement Certificate to be valid you need two stickers from the Osprey Class Association; one for your measurement certificate and one for the transom of your boat. These stickers are issued annually on payment of the appropriate membership fees.

To compete in National and Area Championships one member of the crew should be a Full Member and the other crew member must have at least Associate Membership.

The membership categories and fees  are as follows:-
