Class Privacy Policy

A new EU data protection and privacy law comes into force on the 25th May 2018, it is called "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) in English. GDPR has to be adhered to by all businesses/organisations whether for profit/nonprofit/volunteer/member [including sports organisations like sailing clubs and class associations] that store, process and make use of data that can identify an individual person.

The Osprey Class Association [UK] committee have produced a Class Privacy Policy document as required by GDPR which is based on their current understanding of GDPR. This document may be updated as new guidance, from likes of RYA and others, becomes available.

Bosham Proctor Centenary Event 2nd & 3rd June

Bosham S.C. are going to hold an event to commemorate Ian Proctor's Centenary on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd June. The event will be by invitation only and they have asked the Osprey Association who they should invite, so I am looking for volunteers.

The exact format of the event appears to still be somewhat fluid but broadly they want to get one of each of Ian Proctor's boats to the event and probably one of each Mark to show how each design has evolved over the years. I understand that there will be a collection of all the boats on the lawn on Saturday followed by a Gala Dinner in the evening and racing on Sunday (though by the sound of it the racing will not be hugely competitive more an opportunity to show the boats sailing.)

Bosham would like us to propose a Mark 2 Osprey and a Mark 3 Osprey and possibly a Mark 4 and 5 but that is to be decided.

I would obviously quite like Sappho 73 to attend as the Mark 2 but we are busy that weekend. So do we have any volunteers either to take Sappho or bring another Mark 2 and a volunteer to take a Mark 3.
