    Editor's update: 25 June 2019

    Where's the summer gone? Gaffers Log went to press today with reports from Morbihan and Oostende voor Anker, the Yarmouth Gaffers Regatta and many other interesting contributions. Look out for it at the beginning of July. Despite the weather, there's been a good start to the season and plenty more to come around the coasts from the Bristol Channel and South West, a new small boat event in Scotland, cruising and racing on the East Coast, anniversary celebrations for the Dutch OGA with the Paimpol Festival taking us into August. Where will you be? Browse our Events listing and take your pick . . . We're always keen to welcome new members, so why not think of joining us this year?
