Poole Yacht Club Osprey
The Osprey Class
Our main racing night is Thursday, from April to September, when there is a good turn out on the water and a dedicated dissection of the racing in the bar and restaurant afterwards. We also race with the handicap fleet on Monday evenings. Saturday races are put on in the spring and from September to December.
The 2018 season in underway..... This year promises to be a great year for the Poole YC Osprey fleet, with the addition of 3 new boats, local open meetings at Poole, Highcliffe, and Weymouth, and also the National Championship in August being hosted by Weymouth SC.
We are delighted to welcome new owners, Adam and Tracy Deary, Joe Cross, and Malcolm Shakesby. In addition, Stuart Swann is making a few guest appearances at the back end of 1207; Stuart and Richard are already spicing up the level of competition, which is great to see! The first 2 Thursday evening races have been well supported, even though some boats have yet to appear at the club. I assume April arrived a bit earlier than expected for some of us!! Racing wise, Piers and Phil have scored a couple of bullets, but the highlight so far was Brendan and Charlotte putting in a gritty and stunning performance on April 12th to secure 2nd place, ahead of some of the usual big hitters. If anyone from other classes is interested in taking a closer look at the Osprey, and maybe taking one for a ride, we are a friendly and approachable bunch, so come and have a chat.
