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.

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 can also find us on our Facebook group and page - check out the details HERE  on our website News Page
