The NGOA is an informal group of enthusiasts who own and sail the Norfolk Gypsy yacht. Some Gypsys are at sea, some tucked away in estuaries, others in the quiet reaches of the Norfolk Broads. Their owners are scattered from Scotland to France with a healthy contingent on the East Coast. This site aims to provide a virtual clubhouse where people can exchange information, organise outings, or show off their design for a mast raising rig you can operate with one hand in a Force 7.
We hope it can become a valuable resource for anyone interested in the story of the Norfolk Gypsy.
Clicking on the Gypsy on the right hand side will take you to the Forum. Feel free to log in and ask a question. Better still provide an answer for someone else. 124 Gypsy sail numbers have been issued and their owners represent a valuable store of knowledge and experience. By sharing it everyone benefits.
The easiest way for you to contribute is for you to e-mail me copy or photographs at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will then paste them into the relevant part of the blog. If anyone feels like taking over any specific part of the blog, they are very welcome, in which case they should register with wordpress.com so that they can write straight onto the site.
