About Us

Henley Offshore Group (HOG) was formed in 1991 and quickly attracted more than 60 members interested in offshore sailing and boating, whether they owned boats or not. A full schedule of talks by speakers eminent in the boating world take place during the winter months from October until April, with an occasional club charter to give members a completely new boating experience.

Members come from a wide area, centred on Henley-on-Thames. New members are cordially welcome, the only requirements being an interest in or curiosity about yachting or boating, sail or power - and a modest 5 per meeting ... or you can sign up for the whole year - See what to do by clicking here.

To touch on some previous highlights, the Henley Offshore Group has had speakers ranging from author Tom Cunliffe about his own boats and travels; to Basil d'Oliviera on navigation; Peter Bruce on the intricacies of the Solent and Dorset coasts; yachtswomen Tracey Edwards and Ellen MacArthur on the challenges of ocean racing, and numerous adventurers to both near and far flung coasts.
