Norfolk Sailing Clubs
We’re one of the region’s leading sailing clubs providing leisure and competitive sailing. Dinghy classes include: Wayfarer Laser Splash Leader, Solo, Punt, Wanderer, 420, Enterprise, Phantom and Bittern classes.
The Club is situated in the grounds of Coldham Hall Tavern and enjoys the riverside facilities provided therein. Coldham Hall is situated on the Yare and offers moorings to the many holidaycraft which now frequent the Southern Broadland Rivers during the holiday season. CHSC members have always enjoyed a friendly relationship with the landlord. Indeed it was thanks to the landlord that the club began its activities in 1951. Winter evenings it is used for committee meetings and the AGM is traditionally held in the dining room, one year this proved to be a problem as the pub had caught fire.
Club racing is held every Sunday morning from May to October. Dinghies and half-decked keel boats, round the cans and down river courses as per the race programme. Cruisers down river, alternate Sundays. Most racing is on a mixed handicap basis as members own a variety of boats. Predominant dinghies are Wayfarers (8) with a range of others, together with Norfolks (5) Yeomans (6) and River Cruisers (6). The Club owns two Wayfarer Dinghies, which are available for use by approved members.

Rollesby Broad Sailing Club is the only club in the Broads area offering sailing 52 weeks of the year and welcomes any new members, whether you are an expert sailor or a complete novice. Young or Old! We have a wide range of dinghy classes including:- British Moth, Enterprise, Kestrel, Lark, Laser, Mirror, Optimist, Phantom.
Sailing takes place on Rollesby Broad which is not accessible by boat from the rest of the broads network. This makes for a safe and quiet sailing environment away from the humdrum of the rest of the Broads and hire boat fraternity. There is a large grassed area in front of the clubhouse ideal for watching activities on the water, relax and chat with friends, have a bite to eat, or even to top up your tan on hot days when the sun has more power than the wind.
With two interlocking broads to discover, members who do not wish to race can enjoy pottering or cruising around the broads, or even sailing down to the Eels Foot Pub for some refreshment. In fact our broads are so peaceful, as they are free from motorised holiday cruiser traffic, that they provide habitats for many interesting species of birds.
Berths are available for dinghies, with the heaviest and most frequently used closest to the water., Solo, Wayfarer & Wanderer.
The club also has a selection of boats available for members to hire
