BIG THANK YOU to Vince Horey of Allen Brothers and Ian Pinnell of Pinnell & Bax for their presentations on the Osprey Class stand during the afternoon of Saturday 4th March at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show

Vince Horey of Allen Brothers 

Vince showed some of the new Allen products on the Mark V. These included the jib cleat platforms, designed specifically for the Mark V Osprey. Other new products on the boat included the lightweight Tii mainsheet blocks, while looking to future, Allen expect to develop autoratchet blocks suitable for Osprey jib leads. Allen can curve and twist tracks for travellers, e.g. for jib tracks or mainsheet tracks. They are working closely with Hartley Boats, our builder.

 Ian Pinnell of Pinnell & Bax

The talk by Ian Pinnell was well appreciated by the members. In his talk he covered initial set up of mast, rig tensions, measurement of rake, use of kicker and outhaul in different conditions. After the talk he autographed copies of his Tuning to Win book.
