Bernard Bowes tells us the sad news of Roger Brown Solent OGA member

We have sad news of Bernard Turner who passed away this month, his contribution to our flagshp event Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival was invaluable.

The OGA has negotiated discounts for members with several organisations, providing additional benefits to your membership. Read on for more details . . .

Solent OGA members are encouraged to take part in the Round The Island Race, based in Cowes and there are three Gaffer classes for our members to enter into depending on the size of your boat.

May Update: 37 UK OGA boats have secured berths in Brest, likely to be a record attendance. The update is published for those intending to sail as one of the OGA flotilla ‘in company’, to join the French OGA fleet. Why not trail your boat or join in the fun by ferry or plane? Returning skippers might think about joining the Plymouth Classics at the end of July.

For those Solent Gaffers who know and like Bembridge Harbour here is a link to their latest May edition Newsletter 'On The Wind ' and an event in June

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.
While Poole Harbour towards the west side of the area offers quiet anchorages near to marinas and a busy town
In between these the main area of the Solent offers a wide variety of places to visit and spend time to explore.
Take a while to browse our pages of Events, News and Features to see what is happening and the interesting things and adventures our members get up to sailing in the Solent and beyond.

We have just launched  our Facebook group and page - check out the details HERE  on our website News Page
