The Exe Sails Starcross Steamer was the second race in a series of three for the new South West Series; the first was at Roadford the week before the Exe Sails Steamer, the last will be at Wimbleball the week after, with prizes for the overall winner.

A Baker’s Dozen of new orders at the 2015 Dinghy Show has certainly caused the Osprey class’s fortunes to rise. Eager buyers queued on the Hartley Boats stand to secure their orders and build slots. Remarkably little dough was kneaded for customers to secure their brand new Mark 5 Ospreys, thanks to the amazing launch offer.

After a busy 2014, in which the class had its second successive 40 boat Nationals, and in which it launched new Regional circuits in South Wales and the Lakes, the Osprey class today announces a bigger and better racing programme for 2015.
