2018 Wilkinson Sword Trophy

The current standings with two events left in the series:

  • End of Season Final Fling at Rutland SC on 29th & 21st October [joint meeting with 420, Contender & Hornet classes]
  • Shoreham Open on 28th October, [this is a rearranged date after original event was cancelled due to strong wind forecast]

Shoreham rerun is happening on the 28th October as a one day event everybody is welcome. I will open the bar on Saturday if people want to come the day before. We are planning an 11 o'clock start.

The Osprey Class were very lucky and honoured to have Cliff Norbury & Michael Goffe present a session during the 2017 National Championship covering their recollections of the early days of the Osprey Class.

6534 Michael Goffe, left and Cliff Norbury. Michael Goffe helmed the Osprey in the Olympic trials.

The evening presentation was recorded on video as well as audio; the almost hour long audio recording can be listened to courtesy of Pete Mallaband. It is hoped to produce a transcript of the evening to add to the records of the Osprey Class.
