This year’s Swale Smack & Sailing Barge Match will be held on 29 July. Of course, not everything is always in a name and OGA members should remember that we have three classes for gaffers – open, under 25' and over 25' – and the competition is hotting up as more attend each year. It’s an early tide so the start for gaffers will be around 8am.

Last year’s Match was a great success, helped by the most benign conditions and more than 60 entries, and a great day was had by all, both on the water and afterwards at Hollowshore for the prize giving and partying. We look forward to welcoming you this summer.
