We are also looking at potential sites for motorhomes and camping. There are a number of sites that we have used in the past at New Hedges but these are a significant walk or cycle from the club and all up hill on the way back. We will provide an update as soon as we have one.

1986 National Championship

 Thank you Roger Mant for making a copy of this film of the 1986 National Championship available, Huw Pearce for converting to MP4 and finally Oscar Chess for topping & tailing the video with some captions. No stabalised GoPro back then, best human stabalisation!

 

Event Reports

It is important for the class profile that we regularly and promptly send out reports of Osprey Class Open Meetings and other sailing events in which Osprey owners compete.

The order for report writing of an Osprey Class Open Meeting or a mixed classes regatta is:

1.
Highest placed Osprey Class committee member writes the report        
2.
Whoever is third overall in the Osprey Class writes the report                            
3.
If less than 3 Ospreys participating in the event then the last placed Osprey crew to write the report.   
Reports are always welcome from others as well, it gives an additional perspective of the racing.

The report to be submitted preferably with a photograph or two of the sailing & the results by the Tuesday after the event. That gives a chance of the report being used by Yachts & Yachting magazine as well as https://www.yachtsandyachting.com. The guidelines for how it is done are at https://www.yachtsandyachting.com/…/Guidelines-for-submitti…

You should also copy the report, photographs & results to Huw, and do some blogs on Facebook. Be sure to ask at the host club to find out if photos are available. If not, Angela Mamwell often has photos. Taking a photograph of the results sheet on your phone and posting it on Facebook during the weekend is also good - please check it is a readable image before posting. Facebook is good for internal communication within the class, but we need https://www.yachtsandyachting.com/ and our website for external comm, in the hope of attracting new people to the class.
