Class Boat Ready for Use

Osprey 1360 powering upwind during a windy 2020 Bloody Mary

The class boat is now ready to be loaned out.

We need to look to the future of the class and the new blood that can be welcomed into the Osprey family. The details (application form and loan agreement form) on how to acquire the boat for a defined period are now available. The forms can be filled in electronically, but with Google Chrome browser when you save a completed form it does not save the information you have entered. This is not much good. So on Microsoft Windows systems, download document and open with either Adobe Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Edge browser.

The Osprey Class Committee are actively looking for  the first crew to take her on and join us. If you know of a suitable crew then get in touch with your committee members or local Osprey representatives.

The Osprey is a big, fast sailing dinghy with a single trapeze and a symmetric spinnaker.
