Club History

In 2010 the club celebrated it’s 25th anniversary!!

The first official meeting was in November 1984 in the bar of the Pleasure Boat Inn. Originally the club was formed to be able to properly organise and control windsurfing from the public staithe next to the pub. A big problem was parking and confrontations with the pub landlord were commonplace. Fortunately a local landowner was persuaded to lease the club an area of land that could be used for a car park. This solved the parking problems but the car park was a long way from the launching area. Further discussions with the Broads Authority and other landowners eventually lead to the club acquiring a lease on another piece of land which now forms the club’s beach and launching area. The rest, as they say, is history.

For many years club facilities have been minimal. Changing took place in a couple of sheds or in the car park. In 2008 club members built new changing rooms (with showers and WC facilities).

The club has held introduction days for the public (Come and Try days) for many years, and in 2006 introduced an annual fun day for club members.

In it’s 25th year the club made further improvements updated it’s website, adding more compehensive information, forums, on-line newsletters, galleries, and a forum facility. 6 members were also trained to RYA start level, the club loan equipment was also enhanced.
