The Waveney & Oulton Broad Yacht Club is one of East Anglia’s premier sailing clubs. We are a friendly club that promotes sailing including cruising and racing, of course we also have an active social side to with a well positioned clubhouse on the south side of Oulton Broad. Full details of us can be found on our website www.wobyc.com.
We run RYA affiliated training courses for our junior members which cater for the complete beginner right through to advanced skills and race coaching; some of our past members have progressed to great things including careers in the sailing industry and even Olympic hopefuls!
Most of the training takes place during the summer months of April to October with training being held on Tuesday evenings and racing on Wednesday evenings, Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings. We also organise social activities both on and off the water all through the year.
The club is there for all the family and we would love to see everyone getting involved. Situated on the south bank of Oulton Broad in Nicholas Everett Park it really is one of the best sailing venues on the Norfolk Broads.
People often think that getting involved in sailing is an expensive hobby well it can but it really doesn’t have to be! To make the sport of sailing really accessible to everyone we own a well maintained fleet of boats which are available for hire, please see the Boat Hire page for more details. Of course, if you already have a boat or are thinking of getting one there are plenty of very friendly and knowledgeable people around who are happy to advise!
