We are hoping for a really big turnout of East Coast boats and members for the OGA 55 event. As we recognise that the cost of getting down to the Isle of Wight is not insignificant - fuel and ferries for the trailer sailors, and harbours en route for the cruising boats, the East Coast Committee has decided to offer £100 from EC funds to each EC boat attending the OGA 55 event. This will be refunded to members on arrival at the Folly.
Please do click the 'Express Interest' button on either of those pages so that we know you may be coming, and can share more information with you as details get finalised.
Cruise to OGA 55 Event
'Transcur' is planning to set off from Pin Mill around 1st August with the aim of reaching Kent to join the Swale Match on Saturday 4th August with Witch and Bonita, then cruising leisurely together round the coast to the Solent. We will probably call in at Ramsgate, Eastbourne and Newhaven where we hope to meet up with some local gaffers, then on to Brighton, Chichester and finally to the River Medina. Others may want to set off later, so if you let us know your plans, whether provisional or firm, we can publish them here and hopefully enable everyone to sail with or meet up some fellow gaffers on the way to OGA 55.
