Osprey National Championship at Mumbles Yacht Club - Overall

by Alan Henderson, Osprey Class Association 15 Aug 2016 23:39 BST 11-14 August 2016

After three days of hard racing at Mumbles, the wind finally expired on the final day. After holding the fleet ashore, the Race Officer made a prompt decision to cancel sailing, as the breeze failed to arrive.

Victors this year were DJ Edwards and Adam Bowers, reunited again in an Osprey, 20 years after their last sail together. Just two points behind were Terry Curtis and Peter Greig, with last year's Champions Martin Cooney and Peter Frith a point adrift.

While all three leading teams had years of Championship sailing behind them, the class's 2016 Nationals had a real theme of change, of reinvigoration of the class. The first Mark V Ospreys were part of the 36 boat fleet, but more important there was a big influx of new blood coming into the class, and competing very successfully.

Winning crew Adam Bowers warmly welcomed the "Nippers" as he called them, most of whom had not yet been born when Adam and DJ last sailed an Osprey together! Three under 21 helms were in the top ten, and Adam was sure that it wouldn't be long before he and his helm would be unable to fend off the youngsters' challenge. Perhaps even at Poole next year in August at the class's 60th Nationals?

The Osprey Class are grateful to the following sponsors of the 2016 Osprey National Championships; Hartley Boats, Allen Brothers, Seasure, Clamcleat and Rain & Sun Covers.
