The club committee has taken the difficult decision to close the club. There will be no sailing this coming Sunday, 22nd March and the club house will be closed. This will be the case every Sunday until further notice. The Flag Officers and committee will continue to assess the guidance provided by the government and the NHS and will keep the situation under review. We will update you when there is any change.
You are of course free to visit the site to access your boat.
Welcome to the Norwich Frostbite Sailing Club
Norwich Frostbite Sailing Club is Situated on the River Yare, in Thorpe St. Andrew; close to the centre Norwich. Although the Norwich Frostbite Sailing Club site is not visible from the road it can be accessed easily from the Yarmouth Road, via Girlings Lane NR7 0HE. The Club has ample parking for both Members and Visitors.
Norwich Frostbite Sailing Club was founded in 1933 and is one of the oldest winter sailing clubs in the UK. Sailing takes place every Sunday morning between October and May with class and allcomers racing. The present fleet is comprised of Norfolk One-designs but we are very keen to extend this. Other boats, suited to river sailing are very welcome to take part.
FROSTBITE SAILING CLUB - UEA CAMPUS CITY - THE BROADS
Membership of Norwich Frostbite Sailing Club is open to all and visitors are always welcome; if you are thinking about joining us, or would like to find out more, we invite you to come along and visit us on any Sunday during our winter season, which runs from mid October through to end of April each year. You’ll be most welcome to introduce yourself, talk to members and have a good look round. We have a comfortable (and warm!) clubhouse, directly overlooking the river. Our galley is open from 10:45 – 14:00 each race day where you can always get a hot drink and a snack.
If you do not have a boat there are opportunities to crew for other Club Members. And, for those new to sailing; we can arrange a taster sail for you with one of our members.
We look forward to meeting you soon
