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.

We'll be celebrating our 55th Anniversary this year in true gaffer style. Find out more and express your interest to be added to the priority mailing list
