Latest information

Osprey sail number 1114, Just Pogo, joined an interesting variety of other boats at the CVRDA National Rally at Roadford Lake on the edge of Dartmoor on the 18th and 19th July. Read more

Several maps of information about the Osprey class are now available. No, there are not Ospreys ice yachting in Antarctica, just a convenient location to place those for whom a location is unknown.


Lakes & Borders Series

The Lord Birkett was the first of the Lakes and Border series hosted by Ullswater YC.

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.




Help is requested in tracking down where in the world Ospreys are currently sailed and raced, especially raced. The class is currently aware of the following countries where Ospreys are raced:

  • Canada - primarily at Surrey SC, White Rock Vancouver

  • Cyprus

  • Great Britain - many clubs

  • Nigeria - primarily Lagos YC, Lagos

  • Kenya - Mombasa YC

Please get in touch even if listed above and let the class know where Ospreys are being sailed together with the numbers.

A map of where Ospreys are being sailed and where they have been sailed is now available. No, there are not Ospreys ice yachting in Antarctica, just a convenient location to place those for whom a location is unknown.
