The 2018 OGA Photo Competition is open for entries. There's been some great weather already this season, so remember to submit those best photos.

The OGA Editor frequently receives book reviews for titles which may be of interest to Members. We will be publishing the most recent ones here - so why not send a review of your favourite read to the Editor?

'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 . . .

The launch of this event went very well indeed. Racing in Plymouth Sound was good fun as was the trip up the Hamoze passed the Naval Yards onto Saltash SC. And as for the social side it was virtually non stop. Food and music at the adjacent Mountbatten Sailing Centre was a real highlight.

The Classics goes from strength to strength and were magnificent this year. There was as ever a good programme with racing on two days and plenty on the social side. With little wind on the final day,most boats had all canvas up making an excellent view for the many spectators.

The Annual Swale Smack and Sailing Barge Match is not strictly an OGA event, but it is open to all OGA members and, indeed, to all those with traditional vessels. Why not join us for this lively event on 4 August, 2018?
