The class boat is available for crews to borrow under a loan agreement.

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 crews 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 boat has already been used by several different crews, could you be next!
