On the water - Old Gaffers
The RBYC has a number of members who sail traditional Gaff-rigged boats. In the summer of 2016, several of the 'Gaffers' (members of the Old Gaffers Association) sailed to Festival of Brest and saw members from the RBYC. The club members and Gaffers have a good connection.

Burnham Dinner 2017
Saturday 4th March 2017
It will soon be that time of year again - the days will be getting longer and the Old Gaffers will be turning their attention to fitting out.
The East Coast OGA Annual Dinner at Burnham is on Saturday 4 March, 2017. The Royal Burnham YC always makes the OGA members very welcome, and members of the club are also welcome to book into the Dinner. The event is organised by Trevor and Elaine Rawlinson and they always make a tremendous effort arrange splendid decorations and a sumptuous feast. It's a chance to smarten up a little from the usual "old gaffer" look and exchange a few tales of daring-do over dinner.
