2018 Survey on Nationals Length

The results of the survey conducted of class members in summary was:

  • 31 for 'the 4 day championships'
  • 7 for 'a week long championships'
  • 23 for 'a week long Championships at Mounts Bay reverting to 4 days for subsequent Nationals'

However when assessing the comments, 9 of those voting for the 4 day championships said they would be prepared to do a week long championships at Mounts Bay.

The Committee discussed this at length and felt the results showed a stronger case for 4 days than a week at Mounts Bay and long term confirmed subsequent Nationals will be 4 days long.

Shoreham SC will host the next Osprey WS open, on July 28/29. Remember this will be the last open before the Nationals, so is an ideal time to make sure your boat is up to speed, and that you are ready for some fleet racing in open sea conditions.

The event will be joint with a Merlin open, and Osprey afficianados John and Caz Mills look forward to welcoming you.

Shoreham SC will be pleased to show off to competitors their brand new concrete slipway that should accommodate two boats launching/ coming ashore at a time.

First race Saturday will be at 2pm, and three races will be provided each day.

Breakfasts will be available on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and the culinary highlight will be the Hog Roast on Saturday evening with plenty of beer. There will be sandwiches/ rolls available for lunch with tea and coffee.

There is some camping but it will be limited and on a first come first served basis.  People can arrive Friday, and any who wish to do so should contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
