Traditional Sail Cardiff 2013
A National Celebration of 50 years of The Old Gaffers Association
Friday 28th June- Monday 1st July 2013
A national 3-day event for small gaffers and trailer-sailors to celebrate the OGA’s 50th Anniversary in 2013, attended also by some larger gaffers and classics locally and others prepared to make the passage up the Bristol Channel. This event was organised jointly by the Bristol Channel Area and the OGA Trailer Section.
Cardiff Bay is non-tidal and one of the most accommodating stretches of water for boats of all sizes in the country. Hosted by two great yacht clubs with camping available, there will be river-raiding up the Ely and Taff Rivers, racing for boats of all sizes and a grand parade of sail. For those who wish, boats can lock-out through the barrage (an experience not to be missed) where a race for larger boats and intrepid smaller ones will be staged in the Bristol Channel.
There are many shoreside attractions - A vibrant waterfront with ample public pontoons
Café’s bars and shopping - Art & History - Maritime Heritage
The Millennium Centre, a world class centre for performing arts
The Historic Norwegian Church
Welsh Assembly Government Building (open to the public)
