The East Anglian Cruising Club is holding a series of 3 races for river cruisers.
The class consists of over 400 inland waterways sailing yachts, designed specifically and exclusively for cruising and racing the tidal system of lakes and rivers of Norfolk and North Suffolk. Of these river cruisers, more than 25 are over 100 years old, and over 150 were built before 1940. The Class is not however confined to a vintage and veteran boat collection. A large proportion of member craft were built in the past 20 years, and new class yachts are being launched each year.

Around 150 traditional vessels from Tall Ships to Tugs to yachts and cruisers gathered for this festival which has now been running for 20 years.
Music and street theatre and a celebration of maritime skills make it a great event to attend – even better to sail there.

This wonderful event is the true start of the Classic sailing season along the South West Coast. Sailing boats of many shapes and sizes sail together on the last weekend in May. With the Saturday day offering conviviality along the free Heritage pontoon, traditional fish pie supper and sea shanties at Brixham Yacht Club and a superb firework display over the harbour to round off the evening.
Very few restrictions on participating boats, simply be of heritage design, or a classic yacht, a dinghy or working boat over 30 years old. (Free mooring from 25 to 27 May!) Typical vessels include the remaining Brixham trawlers, smaller working boats, some beautiful dinghie or the likes of the lugger Greyhound, which works cargoes between the south coast and the continent.

10th edition of this famous maritime and international event, a cultural and popular festival, in the magical framework of the “Little Sea” (Mor Bihan in Brittany)
Over one thousand of traditional and classic boats, divided up into coherent and identifiable flotillas, sailing every day and stopping in various ports and anchor points. The result: a “bursting” maritime festival, bringing alive the whole of the Golfe of Morbihan. It is the particular geography and the physical characteristics of this “small sea” (its islands and islets, the narrows which separates and protect it from the high sea, the tides, the currents and counter-currents, the choppy waters), which determinates and rhythm the whole nautical programme.
A programme designed by sailors for sailors

From YOGAFF: With the support of our sponsors, we hope that Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival will return from 12:00 noon on Friday 31st May until Sunday 2nd June 2019.
Back in 2017 Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival was a great success, celebrating our 20th year, the theme was: All Things Maritime! and our chosen charity was the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.
As ever we welcomed visitors and islanders alike to come and watch the magnificent Gaff Rigged boats racing in the Solent and brilliantly dressed in the Harbour.
If you don’t belong to the OGA but own a gaff rigged boat and want to come along, there is a special non-member rate for you. Better still, join the OGA and you can come to everything else the OGA does. If you have an interest in traditional rig although your boat is Bermudan or you want to be part of MOGAFF (our chapter of motor boat owners) you can come along too but you need to join the OGA. If you do that you’ll be eligible for our member only events during the year too.
