The Osprey Class were very lucky and honoured to have Cliff Norbury & Michael Goffe present a session during the 2017 National Championship covering their recollections of the early days of the Osprey Class.

The evening presentation was recorded on video as well as audio; the almost hour long audio recording can be listened to courtesy of Pete Mallaband. It is hoped to produce a transcript of the evening to add to the records of the Osprey Class.
