Norfolk Broads Yacht Club

NBYC sails on Wroxham Broad from April through to October. We take particular pride in promoting all aspects of  competitive  racing as well as encouraging more leisurely and relaxed sailing on weekday evenings.

The Yeoman fleet at Norfolk Broads Yacht Club is probably the largest in the country with over 20 actively sailed boats.  We have competitive fleet sailing with 2 races most Sundays during the season, and handicap sailing on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.

We hold four Yeoman 'weekends' every year, each with its own trophy.  Three of these are open to non-members and the fourth is a closed, members only event.  Each weekend event consists of 4 races and can be very competitive with a high standard of racing.  There are several other club regatta weekends during the season and of course Wroxham Week in July, which provides 2 Yeoman fleet races each day.
Boats can be kept afloat in easy access pens or ashore with free use of the club crane for dry sailing.  The clubhouse facilities are excellent with bar and catering and wonderful views across the broad.  Plenty of green areas around the clubhouse and a childrens playground make NBYC an excellent family club, with extensive training programmes in Optimists and Toppers as children get older.
The fleet has an excellent social programme, with Saturday evening events at all of our class weekends.  We also hold impromptu barbecues occasionally on Sunday afternoons and hold other events, such as our famous winter walk and the Wroxham Week picnic.
The club now owns 3 Yeomans which are available for hire to members, either for racing or cruising.  These are also used for adult training and the club runs several adult courses during the year.
For more information, please contact Steve or Daphne as detailed above.
