'Sailing by' continues to carry stories linked with OGA Cruises in Company. It carries updates from OGA fleets cruising in SW England, France, the Netherlands and Scotland along with associated 'tales of sail' including archive video, photos and related nautical writings.

Many OGA members keep blogs and other online records of their restoration projects, racing and cruising activites. We list them here for others to share. If you have a blog or online tale to share, contact the Editor.
The OGA has negotiated discounts for members with several organisations, providing additional benefits to your membership. Read on for more details . . .

Bristol Channel OGA celebrates OGA55 in style, with a treasure hunt, river raid, cruise, race and parade of sail. The weekend also included the first sailing of the new OGA Dinghy.

East Coast gaffers returned to Stone Sailing Club in 2018 for their Annual Race after several years away at Brightlingsea and Mersea. It was a great success.

At the AGM in Januray 2018, the first hull of the new OGA dinghy was available in London for all to see. She was on display again at Beale Park in June and sailed for the first time in July at the Cardiff Bay OGA55 rally.
