Inland Championship - Carsington SC preceeded by Training Day

The Inland Championship, Carsington Open and Wilkinson Sword Series event will take place on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June.

Training day on Friday 28th June at Carsington SC is the only free class association run training day planned this year. So well worth joining in with highly experienced coach Adam Bowers. Adam is a former Osprey National Champion as well as a noted coach in many other classes.

?Irish Excursion 2020

Anyone fancy a European event in 2020? Next year the Royal Cork Yacht Club in Crosshaven in the Republic of Ireland is celebrating its 300th anniversary with a number of events through the summer. If we are interested the Club are minded to invite us to an Osprey event (to a format that suits us) on the week commencing 2nd August in parallel with the National 18 Class Championships.

I am not yet sure if we would be able to align the dates so that this does not detract from our National Championships at Castle Cove, but if there is sufficient interest we can look at possibilities.

Getting there would involve a ferry from South Wales probably to Rosslare and around 130 mile drive in Ireland, but from what I have heard the hospitality at the Royal Cork Yacht Club is excellent and I know from experience that these National 18 sailors know how to party.

If you are interested please get in touch.

Thanks, David
