We're celebrating our 55th anniversary with two rallies in August!

Details of the 'feeder event', 11 - 15 August, will be updated on this page.

Plans for the 'main' event, 16 - 19 August may be found here.

The small boat rally will be a feeder event to the OGA55 celebration and will cater for dinghies and small trailerable gaffers. We will meet at the Folly Inn and moorings, on the River Medina, Saturday 11 August. We can accommodate campervans and tents in the pub field for those with dinghies, or a Premier Inn is only a short walk away in Newport.

The River Medina itself is good for pottering in a dinghy, but we will plan a cruise each day for those more adventurous. Places we may visit include: Gurnard, River Hamble and other destinations in the Solent. We have arranged for a support boat to accompany the ‘fleet’ should anyone need help.

Details will be finalised in the spring.

Please fill in the expression of interest form (you'll be committed to nothing) and we'll nail down some specifics and let you know more . . .
