Does your boat have an OGA boat plaque? If not, why not get one in time for the Anniversary celebrations in 2018?

The East Coast OGA Annual Race will be held on Saturday 21 July, 2018 leading into the Annual Summer Cruise from Monday 23 July, 2018. 

As always this will be a family friendly week of cruising and racing in local rivers. It has been brought forward this year because of the OGA55 celebrations on the Isle of Wight in August.

We'll be celebrating our 55th Anniversary next year in true gaffer style. Find out more about the two rallies, and express your interest, in order to help the organisers in their planning.

'Sailing by' continues to carry stories linked with OGA Cruises in Company. It carries updates from OGA fleets cruising in SW England, France, the Netherlands and Scotland along with associated 'tales of sail' including archive video, photos and related nautical writings.
