Snowflakes Sailing Club to relocate to Wroxham Broad

The Flag Officers and Committees of Snowflakes and NBYC are delighted to announce that they have reached an agreement that, from the beginning of the winter season 2023, all SFSC activities will take place at Wroxham Broad.

This has secured the future of SFSC and will significantly increase the opportunities for the membership of both organisations.

SFSC will remain a separate club and retain our unique identity whilst being affiliated to NBYC. We will run our own winter series of racing and social programmes as per usual. SFSC members will have full access to the excellent facilities that NBYC offers throughout our season.

NBYC members wishing to enter the winter racing events will need to join SFSC, unless invited as guests, as before.
NBYC members and SFSC will of course have full access to the club and have a standing invitation to spectate and to enjoy any catering provided during racing.

You will appreciate that this is a significant change for both clubs, one we know will enrich the experience of all. A great deal of time and effort has been expended in creating a suitable agreement that protects the interests of all whilst increasing opportunities for both memberships. It will take the first winter season for us to put the agreement into full operation, but we are confident that the welcome we have received from NBYC will be demonstrated in the relaxed Snowflake spirit throughout the winter.

In the meantime the SFSC committee will be working diligently with NBYC to ensure that this will be a smooth transition and start of a new era of Snowflakes at a new location.

For your information membership forms will be available over the next few weeks and we have maintained the same
rate as last year for membership. Also as a thank you for your support there is a 10% discount for paid up members prior to October 31 st. This is membership only.

  • Adult Racing: £60 (£54)
  • Family Racing: £85 (£76.50)
  • Junior Racing*: £25 (£22.50)
  • Student Racing: £25 (£22.50)

As briefly mentioned at the AGM, mooring and berths will need to be paid to NBYC once completed and paid
membership is received by SFSC….This season rates will be £120 keelboat mooring, £60 dinghy berth, £40 Junior
dinghy berth. (No more than a 5% increase per annum for following 2 seasons).

We will keep you posted.
