Help is requested in tracking down where in the world Ospreys are currently sailed and raced, especially raced. The class is currently aware of the following countries where Ospreys are raced:

  • Canada - primarily at Surrey SC, White Rock Vancouver

  • Cyprus

  • Great Britain - many clubs

  • Nigeria - primarily Lagos YC, Lagos

  • Kenya - Mombasa YC

Please get in touch even if listed above and let the class know where Ospreys are being sailed together with the numbers.

Several maps relating to the Osprey class are now available. No, there are not Ospreys ice yachting in Antarctica; just a convenient location to place those sail numbers which were not issued [70S 70W], destroyed/scrapped/written off [70S 0] or have a location inknown to the Osprey Class [70S 70E].
