Weymouth Dinghy Regatta 

This event is due to take place on 11th & 12th July 2015 with a restricted entry of 120 boats. Entry is open so go enter and join the 15 Ospreys (as of 11:00 BST 23rd June 2015) who have already done so. The Notice of Race is available.

The event is preceeded for the Osprey Class on Friday 10th July by a FREE training/coaching day at Castle Cove SC led by Adam Bowers, outline of day here.  Good tune up opportunity for the National Championships which start two weeks later! Book your place with Kevin, you know it will improve your sailing.


Lakes & Borders Series

The Lord Birkett is the first of the Lakes and Border series hosted by Ullswater YC. Enter on-line via SailRacer before 26th June 2015 and note entries will be limited to 230 boats.

Second in the series is at Bass, on 8th & 9th August. This weekend comes at the end of Bass Week (from 1-9 August) and any Ospreys are welcome to do the Week or part thereof, as well as doing our Osprey event on 8th & 9th August. The organiser, Jon Denwood, tells me, "The entries are now live on our website, and there are discounts to be had on both entry fees and camping if bookings are made online prior to 14th June."

Bass Week Brochure

The club has extensive grounds for camping, is very friendly, and Bass Week is a very popular week in the Lakes. Hill walking near at hand, an Osprey watching centre- yes really, and culture with plays nearby at Keswick, theatre on the lake or similar name. Bass and Ullswater (for the Birkett) are lovely spots, so hope to see plenty of Ospreys at both events.
