Round the Island Race

2016 Osprey Nationals, Mumbles YC, 11-14 August

35 teams came to the Osprey Nationals, sponsored by Hartley Boats, at Mumbles YC for a first day’s racing on 11 August. It was the 15th time the Osprey class had picked Wales to host a Nationals, and it was a Welsh team, from nearby Tata SC, which ended the day on top. DJ Edwards and Adam Bowers took two second places to lead. They did not have it all their own way, with race wins going to other teams.

In the first race, Terry Curtis and Peter Greig led to the windward mark, while Mick Greenland and Lee Marriott showed the potential of the brand new Mark V Ospreys by lying second at the windward mark. In 16 knots of breeze, Curtis and Greig took the race, with Edwards second and Piers Strong/ Phil Angrave in third.

The breeze dropped to around 12 knots for the second race, and Martin Cooney/ Peter Frith carved out a huge lead by the windward mark, going on to win. But Edwards stayed in touch with a second place, with Strong/ Angrave in third. 

 

Positions after Day 1, two races;

1. D J Edwards & Adam Bowers, Tata SC, 4pts

2. Terry Curtis and Peter Greig, Weymouth SC, 5pts

3. Piers Strong and Phil Angrave, Poole YC, 6pts
