Solent Gaffers


Solent Events

Welcome to our 2017 Solent Gaffering season !

The Committee hopes to offer a terrific season of land based and waterborne events.
What better than to start with a P**s-up in a Brewery, followed by a visit to the Submarine Museum at Gosport?
The chronological list of events below includes our very own home-grown events along with all the others we know about in The Solent which welcome Gaffers.
As booking for each of our own events ‘goes live’, about a month before each event, members will receive an email and you will also find a link to the booking form from this site. Have your membership number handy!

You can now download the 2017 Solent Event Calendar below for essential dates.  We will add details so do check from time to time.
