Gaffers in the Bay
The Gaffers hold weekly sails from April to the end of September every Thursday afternoon/evening. In addition, there will be other local events organised by the OGA, the Association for Gaff Rigged boats, during the summer months. Any boat with a T(H)CF handicap can enter any event which are all free. If you don’t have a handicap one will be allocated. Just complete the entry form and you will be immediately entered.
The Gaffers format is very simple; the organiser is one of the fleet. All the marks used are marks from CBYC and boats self time themselves around a fixed course. The idea is to have a good sail and everyone enjoys themselves.
After sailing the we adjourn to the bar for a jar, meal and a chat. Most information can be found on this page. In addition Gaffers sailors talk to each other via a WhatsApp group which is also used by the organiser to pass information about upcoming events. If you are interested just turn up on a event day or contact Roger Wallington: email@example.com
