Gerald Iddon an old Osprey Salt celebrated his 80th birthday on Wednesday the 9th Dec 2015. The celebration started with a party on Saturday 5th Dec, several old Osprey Sailors were there. The attached photographs, particularly the first may be of interest. I will name them from left to right and list the boats they owned and sailed, this will  bring back happy memories for Osprey sailors who no longer compete.
