Over 100 boats, old and new, large and small, with home ports from Brixham to Ipswich, have already registered interest in the Yarmouth Gaffers Regatta, 2016.

This event promises to be lively and exciting with up to 100 gaff rigged boats gathering in Yarmouth harbour.

The Solent Old Gaffers’ committee plans two races, involvement of the Yarmouth Scows, other competitions, fun on the water, shared meals and some shore side entertainment. We want to fill the harbour with fun.
This will be a private event, open to all OGA members and to non-members with gaff rigged craft.

The Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival, normally run by the Yarmouth Town Festival committee with music in the marquee, stalls, exhibitions and street entertainment, will not take place in 2016.
This town committee is currently seeking sponsorship and new volunteers so that the festival may go ahead on a two year cycle with the next town festival planned in 2017.
