Osprey - In Brief

MadforSailing takes a quick look at the Osprey
Large, roomy dinghy that is keenly raced. The unusual use of a clinker style hull construction sets it apart from other boats of this type. Good second-hand boats are a suitable introduction to the larger high performance dinghy, where the stable hull design provides a good platform for trapezing and spinnaker work. The Osprey is available in plywood, GRP and composite construction.
