2018 NATIONALS CLOTHING

At vast expense we've hired a top model to show off this year's Osprey Nationals clothing. Big choice of products, from T Shirts to polos to hoodies, vest tops, etc etc. All supplied by Azure Logo Embroidery. If you order before 9th August, your clothing should be made up and delivered straight to you at the Osprey Nationals, ready to wear. Products can be made up with your sail number and boat name, as well as the Osprey Sailing, and Osprey Nationals 2018 branding. Big choice of colours as well as of clothing products. Look out for our special artwork on the back.

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 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
