I own them, I even own jumpers with pictures on. I think they are interesting, striking, even. But I struggle with beautiful when it comes to Minisails.

Rupert, you do seem to a little history with ‘ interesting ‘ boats re minisails, lightings, comets and British moths lol . None of these can be called beautiful.
Not that I am speaking from any high moral ground as my own boat owning history has been, lightning, supernova and British moth x3 lol. And I own a share in a comet too  LOL LOL

This Osprey won the Concours D'Elegance at Bosham Classic Festival this year, against stiff competition from many other examples of vintage classes. Pic courtesy Greg Grant.
If you'd like to check out the looks of a modern plastic Osprey too, come and see us on stand A4 at the Dinghy Show, or the Hartley Boats stand C50.
