OGA 50 Events

The Old Gaffers Association was 50 years old in 2013. To celebrate this there were a number of activities taking place around the country in the various OGA Areas. There were two main events that Witch took part in. The first was the Round Britain Challenge which was a fleet of boats undertaking a circumnavigation of Britain. Some boats took the harder route over the top of Scotland. On Witch we used the Caledonian Canal. This trip took four months, starting in the third week of April and finishing mid August at Cowes for the second event.

15 - 18 August was the Cowes Party which was attended by boats from all over Britain and abroad.

The full-time crew for Witch on the Round Britain was Alistair and Paul Hemsley. Previous crew were invited to participate on 'legs', to and from ports with railway stations.
