ROUND BRITAIN CHALLENGE

   

About the Round Britain Challenge

 

The Challenge aimed to get as many OGA boats as possible sailing all round the British coast.

 

Our  Challenge Itineraries page shows a proposed route, the location of the ports involved in the Challenge and the dates of the OGA50 events that you could attend on the way.

 

  Many of the Boats carried a Tracker System which allowed everyone to follow their progress and

accurately indicate their arrival at various ports.

 

The following boats completed the Challenge

When your finish is the same as your start, you have achieved nothing in the end. A disappointment, all this effort and adrenalin for no result at all..... Anyway I did it. Against the odds, only 63 days. More than 1700 miles in a 74 year old 18-footer.

Everyone who said I could not possibly make it in that time, or was doubtful about it, was wrong.

Achieved something after all.
