The idea is to get people looking at both and leave feedback on
which would be best for promoting the class.

There is also the Osprey “Who Wants to be a MilliOspair
quiz at 3pm both days.

1st to 4th August 2021

Your committee are working hard with Tenby SC and others to put on a fantastic championships in Carmathern Bay at the beginning of August - by which time the majority of us will have had the jab and hopefully be forgetting about the pandemic!

The Notice of Race, Entry Form and Parent/Guardian Declaration Form are available.

Entry list as of 20:00 Friday 19th February 2021.

I recently heard on Radio Cymru that accommodation in Wales is booking up rapidly for the summer months, so here are some sources of accommodation for Tenby:-

1. www.westcoastcottages.wales This site is owned by Lou Commodore of TSC. If people contact her and state that they are sailing at the championships you will receive a 10% discount.

2. Pembrokeshire Coastal Cottages.

3. Airbnb

4. Visit Pembrokeshire website.

We are also looking at potential sites for motorhomes and camping. There are a number of sites that we have used in the past at New Hedges but these are a significant walk or cycle from the club and all up hill on the way back. We will provide an update as soon as we have one.

Event Reports

It is important for the class profile that we regularly and promptly send out reports of Osprey Class Open Meetings and other sailing events in which Osprey owners compete.

The order for report writing of an Osprey Class Open Meeting or a mixed classes regatta is:

1.
Highest placed Osprey Class committee member writes the report        
2.
Whoever is third overall in the Osprey Class writes the report                            
3.
If less than 3 Ospreys participating in the event then the last placed Osprey crew to write the report.   
Reports are always welcome from others as well, it gives an additional perspective of the racing.

The report to be submitted preferably with a photograph or two of the sailing & the results by the Tuesday after the event. That gives a chance of the report being used by Yachts & Yachting magazine as well as https://www.yachtsandyachting.com. The guidelines for how it is done are at https://www.yachtsandyachting.com/…/Guidelines-for-submitti…

You should also copy the report, photographs & results to Huw, and do some blogs on Facebook. Be sure to ask at the host club to find out if photos are available. If not, Angela Mamwell often has photos. Taking a photograph of the results sheet on your phone and posting it on Facebook during the weekend is also good - please check it is a readable image before posting. Facebook is good for internal communication within the class, but we need https://www.yachtsandyachting.com/ and our website for external comm, in the hope of attracting new people to the class.
