Does your boat have an OGA boat plaque? If not, why not get one in time for the Anniversary celebrations in 2018?

The Solent Gaffers will be celebrating 60 years at Yarmouth, IOW in 2018: May 31st to June 3rd.

We'll be celebrating our 55th Anniversary next year in true gaffer style. Find out more about the two rallies, and express your interest, in order to help the organisers in their planning.

'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.

This race will be part of an anniversary sailing event in mid-September to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Leinster, 10 October, 1918.

In 2017, the OGA approved a proposal to build a small dinghy and at the AGM in Januray 2018, the first hull was available in London for all to see.
