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

The Burnham August Bank Holiday weekend Osprey open attracted eleven boats, and was hard fought among the leaders.

Russ Wheeler started badly with a ninth, but then sailed four very good races including two wins to win overall by just a point. Tim Bowden on other hand started very well with a win, but then plunged!

Rob Shaw managed more consistent results, but lost out by just a point to Russ, to take second overall. Mick Taylor also scored well throughout, and finished with a win to take third overall, just a point behind Rob Shaw.
