nice one ,but i have to say i have previously owned osprey no.28 and then later no.1022 when an osprey was an osprey and not a modern variant. when we say classic one design we mean it .. looking forward to seeing you with your carbon fibre bow sprit .. you know it,s only a matter of time you,ll be able to race along side an rs 400     heres to classic one design classes  have a look at jjboats for the one design classic ...................   no offence intended

valid point- but my Osprey  is a 20 year old wooden version with metal pole and mast - will stay that way and am still winning the odd race at open meetings and fhe second baot at the natilnals was also wood/classic
the boat builders wierd classes seem to be waning and people seeing the sense in buying classic classes like Osprey and Javelin (you have to admit it does look a lot like an Osprey!)
RS400 prices have dropped like a stone

There was absolutely no point in producing yet another lightweight oriented boat that required helms and crews to look at each other and think 'Well just maybe they should diet next season  ... if we are ever to be fully competitive'    ;-)  

From rb_stretch
Amen to that. 

What would be even better would be more boats that can take a heavy helm competitively...  "

The above seen on another string.

Nuff said methinks............, in fact don't we know of two that can take weighty or light, in kind conditions or heavy and on lake or a tideway.
