Solent Gaffers

THE SOLENT AREA OF THE OGA

Solent

Welcome

The Solent Area covers the south coast of England from Brighton to Weymouth and includes the Isle of Wight. Chichester Harbour provides a unique area of safe sailing and anchoring. There are main channels feeding inland to Emsworth, Bosham and to Chichester.

The March 2015 Practical Boat Owner has a very nice picture of one of our hairier members, Lilly, sailing her Cornish Crabber Pilot Cutter 'Alice Pellow' in Chichester harbour as their Seadog of the month. She's no stranger to fame after winning our OGA50  best Salty Seadog competition at Cowes.

We hear the sad news about a fellow French Gaffer and Dick Dawson has given us an appreciation of his life.

The Solent Gaffers are invited to come to the Cowes Classic Week in July 2015
