Tuning guru to speak on Osprey stand

Drop by the Osprey Association stand (A4) at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show on Saturday 04 March, 3.30pm, where multiclass champion and sailmaker Ian Pinnell, will be giving a talk on tuning.

In his talk, which is open to all, Ian will demonstrate the rig controls and effects on our Show boat. He will unravel the mysteries of boat tuning, and demonstrate how to get that extra edge of speed out of your boat. He will also be available to sign copies of his new book 'Tuning to Win'.

Sailors from all classes are sure to learn from Ian's tips. Come and learn the effects of tuning controls on sail shape and speed in different conditions.

On display at the show will be the latest epoxy Mark V Osprey. It has a carbon rig and a full array of rig controls, including mast strut and adjustable rake and shrouds, perfect for tuning demonstrations.

Osprey Class Association Chairman Peter Frith commented: 'We are delighted to welcome Ian Pinnell to our stand. The Osprey's carbon rig gives plenty of scope for skilled tuning, and that is one of the reasons why such a wide range of crew weights are able to enjoy racing the Osprey competitively.'
