While Poole Harbour towards the west side of the area offers quiet anchorages near to marinas and a busy town
In between these the main area of the Solent offers a wide variety of places to visit and spend time to explore.

At the AGM in Januray 2018, the first hull of the new OGA dinghy was available in London for all to see. She was on display again at Beale Park in June and sailed for the first time in July at the Cardiff Bay OGA55 rally.

There will be serious competition in the OGA Sailing 'Log' boat championships this year, with prizes awarded at the OGA55 Rally in August. Bristol Channel members have already launched their boats, so start planning now . . .
