Allen Brothers Managing Director Liz Adams said, “I am really pleased to be continuing our support of the Osprey class. Allen Brothers is a business run by sailors for sailors. By our active involvement in racing, from Olympic to grass roots levels, we incorporate valuable feedback into every product we manufacture and our customers can clearly see the results.

Osprey Class Association Chairman Peter Frith added, “We are delighted to see Allen back as a sponsor for the Osprey Nationals this year. The Osprey is an ideal platform for continual product development as the class is long established, yet older boats can still race competitively against the newer builds. We are all looking forward to seeing the brand new Osprey Mark 5s competing for the first time at this year’s Nationals, delivering another exciting contest in beautiful surroundings
