South West Gaffers is the South West Area of the OGA and organises events both on and off the water for those Members who live or cruise in the South West of England.  

To join in our events you need to be a member of the OGA, so browse around to find out more. You can even sign-up online!

Our main event is our Annual Race and Rally that is usually held each year in Plymouth. We normally also have sailing events on the Helford River and on the Dart at Dittisham.  Dittisham is particularly good for small boats.  We support several events in the South West that are not organised by the OGA such as those at Brixham and Falmouth.  We also have several land-side events each year including a Fitting out Lunch in March/April and a Laying up Lunch and AGM the first weekend in November, both usually held in the Plymouth area.

During the winter months, we arrange occasional informal meets in pubs across Devon and there is often a get-together with a nautical theme in Cornwall..
