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.
Sadly, it was decided that the 2020 Summer Cruises and Training weekend should be cancelled. Numerous resources are needed to run these events, many of these are adversely impacted by COVID and the restrictions it has caused. Ultimately, safety is the most important consideration and as the club cannot not ensure a group of persons that are in such close proximity for extended periods on a small boat would not be exposed to the virus, then we cannot run the cruises. The Sailing Secretary will contact you to refund in full all cruise payments received.
We are hoping that the Round The Island & Cecil Howard Memorial Races can still go ahead although the dates could change; this will be reviewed again and another update sent when we know more.
Here is a message from our Commodore:
Dear Fellow sailors
I hope this finds you well in difficult times, it is with great sadness we have to cancel summer cruising this year. Personally, I find myself now cruising between the hospital and home and like other staff in the NHS appreciate the support of yourselves and other members of the public.
All being well there may be an opportunity for us to get together later in the year socially if not for sailing. Wishing that you all stay well until we meet.
We run two races each year – 2020 dates are below. For more details click on race.
- Round the Island Race – 22nd August – Somerleyton
- Cecil Howard Race – 6th September – Cantley to Coldham Hall
