Not just an AGM but a gaffer-style birthday party with music beer and song to celebrate 55 years of the OGA. As in all the best AGMs we keep the Agenda focussed and short, the entertainment fresh and the socialising long. Annual Prizes and awards for the good and the brave! Plenty to cheer for!
Meeting, meals and evening party will all take place in a hotel location very near the London Boat Show. Discounted rooms for members and the pre-book buffet supper are now closed for booking but bar meals will be available in the hotel
If you haven't been to an OGA AGM before, here is a chance to meet members from across the country and take a mini break in the capital. Bring along the family, take a ride on the spectacular Thames cable car, visit Greenwich including the Cutty Sark or, even closer, the Museum of London Docklands.
Calling all musicians
Do you play the fiddle? Squeezebox? Guitar? Bring along your instruments, singing voice, tambourine or spoons to help the party party, conjure up the spirit of the sea and usher in the coming sailing season.
OGA Dinghy update
There will also be the opportunity to look at drawings and discuss the build of the new OGA dinghy with other members and with Tony Kiddle who is already building the first one.
