More about the Bristol Channel Area

The Bristol Channel area covers some 300 miles of coastline, with sailing ranging from the open sea of the outer channel to the sheltered waters of the estuaries.

Weekly Gaffers Night in Cardiff Bay: April - September

Thursday evenings through the summer are Gaffer’s Nights in Cardiff Bay when the OGA fleet enjoys an informal sail followed by a drink in the Cardiff Bay Yacht Club bar. Added interest will be provided for those with a competitive bent by our summer series of self-timed races around the buoys. charlieandsueharris [at] hotmail [dot] com (subject: Thursday%20sailing) (Contact Charlie Harris) for more details.
