Eastern Region Christmas Party 2nd December 2017

This Year's Christmas Party will be held on Saturday 2nd December at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club, 7 for 7.30pm. Dress smart. The menu has been emailed so please phone your orders and payment to the club on 01502 566726. If you havn't received it let me know. Overnight accommodation is available at the club, also at the nearby Hatfield Hotel on 01502 565337. And of course there will be plenty of moorings for those of us wishing to come in our boats.

After dinner we will be entertained by STARRZ, singers Toni and Dave who will perform music from the 60s onwards as well as a bit of witty banter to which I expect you all to give as good as you get! Should be an excellent evening and a good laugh. Last orders 17th November please.

E Region 2017 Events Remaining


We are well into the season now but there is still lots to do.

Beccles Rally August 26/27th.

Although this is fully booked there is a waiting list so if anyone is thinking of dropping out please let Jane Neale know so she can fill the gap.

Ranworth Island BBQ September 9th.

This will be a super event for ALL members based anywhere. Please come and join in. The Southerners will cross to the North on the Friday-LW Yarmouth 1838 but going through earlier-aiming for Pedros at Acle Bridge that evening for dinner-all welcome. Saturday will be the BBQ. Joan Haig will provide a cream tea in the afternoon and Ryan and Sam from Pedros will be there in the evening to ply us with cocktails! Please let Joan know if you want to join in at any stage-what's not to like about it?-This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will have to return South on the Sunday, hoping to get to Berney or Polkeys before dark.

AGM Weekend October 20/22nd.

Invitations have already gone out so I hope as many of our region as possible will attend. Please send your booking to John Oldham by 15th September. There will be lunch at Brooms on the Saturday or alternately Keith Rowe will be doing another of his splendid walks with commentary around Norwich.

Christmas Party December 2nd.

There will no Laying Up Supper as such so we will combine this with the Christmas Party at RNSYC. Details to follow.

New Year's Eve.

Tracy Read is organising a party at Waveney River Centre. Please contact her for further details.


Broom Boats BBQ July 8th

The weather was perfect, the island location beautiful in the sun and the food and drink in good supply so everyone had an excellent time, some of us carrying on till very late. There was a good turn out generally by Broom customers and most of those present were club members which is very pleasing. Many thanks to Broom Boats for their generous hospitality.

Eastern Region Northern Rivers BBQ and Update

It is planned to have a DIY BBQ on Ranworth Island on Saturday 9th September. I hope lots of members based on the Northern Rivers will be able to come and the timing will allow members to cross over from the South during extra low Spring tides and back on the Sunday, albeit late on. We will probably set off to the North from Brundall on the Thursday or Friday and pause at the new restaurant at Acle Bridge. The event is being organised by Joan and John Haigh and they have booked the moorings, so please let them know if you wish to attend This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Broom BBQ is set to go ahead this Saturday 12 till 4 and it would a good idea to let them know if you are going.

The Brundall Boat Show went well for the club with new members arriving and existing members I had not met before. I hope we managed to break the ice a bit. It was also pleasing that so many members helped man the stand and sell the club. A great effort.

Two boats recently returned from a Thames cruise, visiting Shotley, Ramsgate, London, Chatham and Ipswich and the East Coast cruise will set off from Brundall Saturday 15th July for two weeks.

The Beccles rally end August is fully booked but if you are still interested let Jane Neale know in case of cancellations.

The big event will be the club's national AGM Weekend October 20/22nd at Dunston Hall. As our region will be hosting it this year I am hoping for a good turnout from you all and any help with the running would be appreciated. Invitations will be going out later this month.

Laying Up Supper end October and Christmas Party early December details to follow nearer the time.
