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.
Local groups and individuals are invited to nominate their historic ports and harbours in England, Scotland, Wales and N Ireland for designation as a 'Heritage Harbour', an initiative by the Maritime Heritage Trust and National Historic Ships Shipshape Network.
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.

'Sailing by' continues to carry stories linked with OGA Cruises in Company. It carries updates from OGA fleets cruising in SW England, France, the Netherlands and Scotland along with associated 'tales of sail' including archive video, photos and related nautical writings.

In Januray 2018, the first hull of the new OGA dinghy was displayed in London. On display again at Beale Park in June, she sailed for the first time in July at Cardiff Bay OGA55 and joined the OGA55 celebrations on the Isle of Wight in August, sailing in the Solent.

Several OGA members attended this inaugural conference in Arnside, 16 March, 2019 which was extremely interesting and informative on several different levels.

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Neal Hill who was the OGA Secretary, Scotland for many years.

The Solent Area was treated to an evening talk about Robinetta's trip around Ireland Anticlockwise.
