Inland Championship - Carsington SC preceeded by Training Day

The Inland Championship, Carsington Open and Wilkinson Sword Series event will take place on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June.

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.

Classic Boat Article

Classic Boat magazine have an article on the Osprey. Alan Henderson & Oscar Chess helped them with the article.

Two Ospreys were on show at the event. Mick Greenland's Grey & Yellow boat on the Osprey Class stand with a custom fit and lots of string! On the Hartley Boats stand was the new boat for John Shenton in white or grey [can't tell from the photos] with Teal highlights [centreboard case, foredeck & new cassette rudder stock.

Mick's boat was commended in the Y&Y Concours d'Elegance competition and was mentioned as such in the recent Sailjuice podcast.

The boat on the Hartley stand, was the new standard layout Mark V. It has single pole, and simpler systems, hence cleaner layout, and better pricing. Carbon spars and adjustable rigging were
included in that boat.

Some photos of both boats are below.
