Promoting cruising and ‘Broadsmanship’ on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads in traditional River Cruiser class yachts. The club is dedicated to organising cruises on the Norfolk Broads and teaching young people from twelve years of age how to sail on traditional broads yachts. We are an RYA Training Centre and run cruises and training over Easter and the Summer.

RYA Training and Cruises – cancelled 2021

Races – still running 2021

Here is a message from our Commodore

As you are aware there have been no activities so far this year. Easter Cruise, Rigging party and the Tony Tomkins BOFF Cruise were all cancelled due to Covid.  Committee meetings are still being held over Zoom.  The current view of the committee is that we are unlikely to be able to run summer cruises or training courses this year.  Although there is a little more potential for Day sailing or BOFF cruises late in the season.
We are still hopeful that we can run the Round the Island and Cecil Howard Memorial Races.
Derigging Party and Christmas party could be possible if there is not a pandemic surge in the Autumn/Winter. It would be fantastic if we could meet up for a social event in a safe environment.
The Chief instructor has asked us to remind all of those with Instructor qualifications (including Assistant and Senior) to check their qualification status and renew as necessary.
Your committee will continue to monitor the situation and advise you of any plans as they develop.
Best Wishes to All
Andy Garnham
