Training day on Friday 28th June at Carsington SC is the only free class association run training day planned this year. So well worth joining in with highly experienced coach Adam Bowers. Adam is a former Osprey National Champion as well as a noted coach in many other classes.

Gul Osprey Round the Isle of Wight Race 15th & 16th September

While there are still several i's to dot and t's to cross we have made some good progress on an Osprey Round the Island race in September this year. Not least in getting Mike Pickers to sponsor it.

 

The Entry Form has yet to be produced so if you could let Oscar and me know if you intend to enter that will help in fixing costs etc. Contact details are on the NoR. Despite the sponsorship this will not be a cheap event but we expect the entry fee to be not more than £100 per boat.
We will be looking for competitors to help in getting RIBs etc available and may well be asking competitors to record their finish times themselves. It is likely that Roger Proctor will be the official race starter.

I should point out that this race is not something to be undertaken lightly, will take around 10 hours and for a significant part there will be limited or no places of refuge therefore both boat and crew must be fit for the race.

It will however be a significant achievement to have successfully completed.
