Future UK National Championship Venues

 

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.

CONISTON REGATTA - Just in case anyone was thinking of coming this will not take place on the second bank holiday in May.

19:00 GMT on Tuesday 17th March 2020

It is with regret that taking account of the latest Government advice on the Coronavirus epidemic, Blithfield SC and Tata Steel SC in agreement with the Osprey Class Association have decided to postpone indefinitely their Osprey events scheduled for April 4th & 5th and April 18th & 19th respectively.

Both clubs are now working with the Class Association to hopefully find dates for these events in the Autumn.

In addition Mounts Bay Sailing Club have announced that due to the current situation, the Osprey Open meeting will not be going ahead in May 2020 and no alternative date is being considered currently.
