Electronic copies of the Osprey Class magazines that have been acquired by Huw Pearce over the years. A history of class magazines and yearbooks publications and significant events plus the latest sail number for a year, Publications History, is available.
Copies of magazines from December 2001 are from the original electronic form but reduced in quality to reduce file size and therefore make the speed of download quicker, plus save bandwidth of our web server. The quality has been targetted at viewing on ebook readers and computer screens. In many cases the original PDF file size has been reduced by over 85%. Note - I have not yet been supplied with electronic copies of magazines produced since 2011. Note - copies of magazines produced for printed distribution will not appear in electronic form for download until at least 6 months after printing.
The copies of magazines prior to December 2001 will be scanned and converted to PDF format; 1973 to 1981 available via links below but still 1982 to 2000 to be done. The quality of these magazines is less than the conversions of those originally in electronic format. However in most cases it is still more than acceptable in the opinion of the webmaster!
