Winter exclusion zone – 1 Nov to 31 March 2018

Please remember to keep clear of the winter exclusion zones, marked by a line of white Buoys, and yellow hatching in the picture. This is to help minimise the disturbance to wintering birds. This goes back to when the Club was formed and agreed with the Broads Authority, other organisations and water users.

Race day – 9 October 2017

The first official Race Day for a decade or two was well organised, and a great success. With a westerly wind gusting to Force 4, the course was laid out from the point to a Southerly Buoy. The results after 5 races were: 1st Martin, 2nd, Simon, 3rd Darren. Thank you to Richard for organising, and the ‘three men in a boat’ (Graham, Dave, Darren) for helping to keep proceedings under control.

Everyone is looking forward to the 2018 race series.
