The Solent Annual General Meeting this year will be on Saturday November 25th 2017

Saturday 15 July found 28 boats at the start line for the OGA East Coast Race with a successful Small Boat Race on the following day. Read reports and results for both events here.

Now is the time to start thinking about this year's photo competition. Entries may be submitted online from 30 June 2017. Read on for more details and links to the submission forms and guidance notes for 2017.

We are now taking entries for the East Coast OGA Big Week! As always it's a family friendly week of cruising and racing in local rivers and this year we plan to sail south!

We'll be celebrating our 55th Anniversary next year in true gaffer style. Provisional programme now available here - and the opportunity to express your interest.

Despite earlier reports that the fleet was stormbound, we hear that four boats have reached the Isles of Scilly.

The OGA Sou' by Sou'West fleet is stormbound in Falmouth, and has decided this must be the journey's end . . .

OGA boats departed Yarmouth Isle of Wight earlier this week to sail westwards, joining Gaffers along the way for parties, adventures and fun! We'll be reporting from the fleet every few days . . .
