Welcome Aboard!

The club was founded in 1948 to foster greater friendship between keen sailors to encourage those whose interests lie primarily in cruising and maintaining thier sailing craft and to protect their interests.

Each year we attempt to navigate the entire broads network, this is usually accomplished by a sailing programme consisting of ten events some lasting a week others being weekends.

Members come from far and wide many traveling great distances to be with us in the delightful surroundings of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads.

We have no base and members  yachts are moored on both the Northern and Southern rivers.
