East Coast


An intrepid group of East Coast Gaffers gathered at Tollesbury Sailing Club for the first sailing event of the season, enjoyed with plenty of other activities ashore . . .

We'll be celebrating our 55th Anniversary next year in true gaffer style. Provisional programme now available here - and the opportunity to express your interest.

Do you have photos to share from an East Coast event? Read on for details of how to add them to the East Coast Galleries.

Following on from Swallows and Amazons, why not visit the East Coast again for a bit more sailing in Arthur Ransome territory? Trailer Section and East Coast members enjoy a weekend sailing near where the rivers Thurne and Bure join.

A new event for the Trailer Section at Rutland Water Sailing Centre has now been confirmed with full joining intructions available here.

The OGA is planning a summer cruise 'South by South West' in 2017. Register interest now and we will build the programme to fit numbers and starting ports.

Once again the Walton and Frinton Yacht Club opened their doors and welcomed the East Coast Gaffers in great style, starting with a cooked breakfast on Saturday morning where the weather was the focus of attention.

Dates are now confirmed for the East Coast OGA Big Week! As always it's a family friendly week of cruising and racing in local rivers and this year we plan to sail south!

The East Coast OGA Annual Race will be held on 15 July, 2017 and there will be a race for small boats on the Sunday.
