EC Gaffers in Ramsgate for OGA60

Six East Coast boats are taking part in the Round Britain Cruise to celebrate OGA60, the OGA Diamond Anniversary. There was an excellent party weekend in Ramsgate, including a sail up to Sandwich, organised by OGA stalwarts Robert and Jan Holden. The six East Coast boats taking part in the RBC arrived in Ramsgate to be joined by several others by motorboat, campervan and car. The tides enforced a rather early start at 0400 on Monday 1 May, so there are no photos of the ‘grand depart’.

Follow the fleet’s progress on the ‘Sailing by’ blog and OGA Instagram feed.
