2016 Nationals Poster

The Osprey Class Association

Looks forward to an exciting 2016 with the launch of the Mk5 version of the Osprey [teaser pictures below]. It is thought 20 new boats have been ordered. How many will make the National Championships?

We also welcome the Contender Class to the Hartley range of boats.

The 2015/2016 GJW SuilJuice Winter Series Bloody Mary took place at Queen Mary SC on Saturday 9th January 2016 and 4 Ospreys sailed. Unfortunately one did not finish for some reason, but the other 3 finished 20th [1290 Martin Cooney & Peter Frith], 35th [1281 Terry Curtis & Richard Burton] and 37th [1347 Phil Meakins & Ben Meakins] out of the 217 finishers.

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 sail numbers which were not issued [70S 70W], destroyed/scrapped/written off [70S 0] or have a location inknown to the Osprey Class [70S 70E].




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.
