The NSBA InterClub Championship for the Ramuz Trophy was sailed on 10 September, hosted by Rollesby Broad SC and sailed in Wayfarers, provided by Club members. Many of the Broads area top dinghy sailors, representing fourteen local clubs took part in the event.

Four back to back heats were sailed and the top six clubs went on to sail in the final. The weather was overcast and a variable southerly wind blew up the Broad for most of the day.  In Heat 1 NBYC, represented by Ian Richardson and Adam Barker took an early lead and held their position throughout the race. In Heat 2 the first three places were determined in the first round with the local sailors Ian and Sharon Ayres representing the home club finishing ahead of HBSC and SFSC.  In Heat 3 NBYC had another win and Rollesby recorded a second place with Simon and Caroline Marfleet representing WOBYC third to cross the line.

 

In Heat 4, the racing was much closer with positions changing constantly. Peter Dearnley and Dinah Slatter for HBSC took an early lead and had a close battle with Jane Pye and Chris Haslam sailing for Snowflakes SC.  SFSC pulled ahead of HBSC in the last round to take the bell.  NFSC sailors Paul and Pat Tegerdine worked their way through the fleet from sixth at the end of the first round to finish in 3rd position.

After lunch the six finalists took to the water sailing a lengthen course, as the weather closed in. The first round was very close with SFSC and HBSC battling it out at the front of the fleet.  In the second round WOBYC overtook HBSC as Jane Pye eased ahead and kept her position to take the Ramuz Trophy on behalf of SFSC – a great way to celebrate her birthday.

The magnificent Trophy was presented to Jane and Chris for Snowflakes SC by Rollesby Broad Commodore and OD for the day John Saddington, along with commemorative glasses for all finalists.  NSBA Chairman Brian Wilkins thanked the host Club for organising such a good event, and the members for lending their boats and all competitors for participating.  We are grateful to Alan Boswell Insurance Group for covering the event.

The 23rd annual Broadland Youth Regatta was hosted by the Norfolk Broads Yacht Club at Wroxham Broad on 3rd September.

Light southerly winds provided a challenging course for the 75 youngsters who competed in 64 boats ranging from Optimists through Toppers and Fevas to Solos and Lasers. Six Broadland sailing clubs were represented by teams, with each competitor sailing four races.

The final series of races was curtailed by heavy rain and lack of wind leading to dramatically shortened courses, but the event was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved.

Individual winners of the series races included Ben Campbell (Laser) of Norfolk Broads Yacht Club in the fast handicap, Toby Pearce of Horning Sailing Club in the Toppers, and Josh Means of Horning Sailing Club in the Optimists.

The slow handicap series was won by George Curtis and Andrew Morgan of Beccles Amateur Sailing Club in their traditional Norfolk Dinghy, also winning the Whelpton trophy for double handlers having won all four of their races.

The prestigious team Centenary Salver for the winning team went to Horning Sailing Club by the narrowest of margins, who despite having competed every year, had never won before in the Regatta’s history.

The Lady Mayhew trophy for personal endeavour was awarded to Elizabeth Ford of Norfolk Broads Yacht Club, who was competing in her first major Optimist race series.

New Trophy for Broads Boating – Martin Broom Memorial Trophy

All who knew Martin Broom were saddened when he passed away last year. Martin will go down in Broads history as a wise, unassuming and tireless worker for boating on the Broads. His record for contribution to the administration and well-being of boating is without equal. After consultation with Martin’s widow, Jennifer, the Norfolk and Suffolk Boating Association’s General Purposes Committee has decided that each year the NSBA should offer to award a trophy in Martin’s name for an outstanding contribution to Broads’ boating. For this purpose, ‘outstanding contribution to Broads boating’ is not limited to any particular context. It could, for example, be awarded on the basis of work behind the scenes, contribution in the commercial boating sector, contribution to training, or a combination of such things.

The Trophy, which is currently being made by Lorne Betts, a skilled master craftsman whose work featured in Anglia Afloat in 2008, will be presented at the NSBA’s Annual General Meeting in December.

The Trophy can be awarded to an individual, a group of individuals or an organisation. Nominations must be made either by an affiliated club or organisation of the NSBA or by two individual members of the NSBA. The nomination must be in writing. It must state why the nomination is being made and include factual information in support. The closing date for nominations is 30 September in any year. The nomination must reach the Hon Administrator (e-mail: julia.bower1@btinternet.com) by 1159 hrs on that day. The full set of rules relating to the Trophy were published in the NSBA Newsletter of Spring 2014 and can be downloaded here.  Martin Broom Award rules
