East Coast


We've received an invitation from the Nancy Blackett Trust to join a flotilla on the River Orwell in June.

Convivial cruise to the Crouch with racing for those who wish and jolly social gathering for all. Some interesting non-gaffer old boats to see too.

The East Coast OGA Annual Race will be held on 15 July, 2017.

The famous Big Race for Small Boats, held in the Walton Backwaters, remains popular with the East Coast Gaffers. Sheltered waters for small boats, but challenging tides, current and mud banks. Bring all the family and camp near the yacht club for the weekend.

The OGA is planning a summer cruise 'South by South West' in 2017. Register interest now and we will build the programme to fit numbers and starting ports.
