THE SOLENT Gaffers will celebrate at Yarmouth, IOW, from Thursday 30 May to Sunday 2 June 2019.

The Yarmouth Gaffers Regatta will continue to be the biggest annual gathering of gaff-rigged boats in the UK with up to 100 boats attending. The party will be open to gaff, sprit and lug rigged boats, whether or not skippers are members of the OGA.

The shore-side Old Gaffers Festival is no longer to take place. However the new Festival of Sea Songs and Shanties will be on-site.
