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.

Class Secretary Wanted

help3 smallThe Osprey Class are looking for a member to come forward and be the Class Secretary

Congratulations to Viola Hepburne Scott and Michael Scott who took their first ever Scottish & Northerns title at Kielder on 10/11 September. 

Lots of close racing in light to medium winds on Saturday, and in light breezes on Sunday. Shifty n gusty on Sat, just light n shifty on Sun. Rob Shaw and Ian Little opened well with wins in first two races, closely followed by Viola/ Mike. 

Jonathan Osgood was sailing in his 18th successive Kielder open, but for first time with Alec Mamwell. They soon warmed up and joined the Kielder pair at the front. Ros and David Downs interrupted the top three by taking one third place but mostly sparred with Alan Henderson/ Cameron Milne. Willie Crichton introduced Kielder member Judy Scullion to the joys of Osprey opens, hope to see her again. But despite tricky breezes, Viola/ Mike stayed in top two in all races to take the title, with Rob/ Ian second, and Alec/ Jonathan third.

The event was preceded by an excellent day’s coaching by Tim Rush of North Sails in breezy conditions. Tim’s exercises included reach to reach gybes, and two boat tuning sessions. He took a lot of very good footage from above the boats using a camera pole, and we all look forward to seeing that footage. 

Virtually all the fleet agreed to meet again at Ullswater for the final Lakes and Borders event on 10/11 October.
