Many OGA members keep blogs and other online records of their restoration projects, racing and cruising activites. We list them here for others to share. If you have a blog or online tale to share, contact the Editor.
The OGA Editor frequently receives book reviews for titles which may be of interest to Members. We publish the most recent ones here. Why not send a review of your favourite read to the Editor?

Put the date for the OGA AGM 2020 in your diary now and come to enjoy a weekend in Bristol, hosted jointly by the Bristol Channel and South West OGA Areas.
