You can enjoy handicap racing in your Osprey at your club, but the best form of racing is against other Ospreys. These are your opportunity to meet fellow Osprey enthusiasts.

Therefore your Class Association organises a wide variety of racing opportunities for the class.

At the top are the Osprey Championships. The National Championships are the class’s blue riband event, held in July or August every year. In both 2013 and 2014, the Nationals attracted a bumper forty boat fleet, so this is the event you really must not miss. There are also major Championships available at the beginning and end of each season. The Inlands is usually held in April, and the End of Seasons in November.

Next there are three Regional Championships, the Welsh & Midlands, the Southerns, and the Scottish & Northerns.

Spread through the whole season is the Nationwide travellers series, the Wilkinson Sword (WS) series. This series takes in up to a dozen events across the country from the SW to the North of England.

To give Osprey sailors the chance to sail a series closer to home, we also organise a number of Regional circuits, currently in the Lakes & Borders, South Wales, and Southern areas.

See Events Calendar section of this website for latest list of events and dates.

Look out for dates of FREE class coaching days.

Racing against other Ospreys is the best way to make progress and pick up tips from your fellows in a friendly class.

So Come and Join us!
