Where better to race radio controlled model yachts than the beautiful Norfolk Broads, an area of outstanding natural beauty and rich in the heritage, history and tradition of sailing all manner of different craft, from the famous Norfolk Wherry to the Broads Sailing Cruiser, from the Broads Dinghy to the Broads One Design and now the very latest in radio controlled sail boats.

The Broads Radio Yacht Club (BRYC), which has been in existence for more than thirty years organises racing events for International One Metre (IOM), Radio Marblehead (RM) and Radio Six Metre (R6M) classes of boats on most Sundays throughout the year, and informal racing and practice sessions on Wednesday mornings. Our full programme of events can be seen by clicking on the Programme link above.

Our sailing water is exclusive to the BRYC with no disturbance from other water users, pollution or debris to impede racing. Facilities include a restaurant/café, toilets, private parking and a grassed area for yachts between races. We also have exclusive use of a boat, with an electric outboard motor fitted, for the safe retrieval of yachts should this be necessary. Safety and first aid equipment is always on hand.

We are affiliated to the Model Yacht Association (MYA) and through them have a £5,000,000 Public Liability cover on registered, private club waters. Radio Sailing is promoted nationally by the MYA and is represented at major exhibitions such as the Dinghy Sailing Show. It also enjoys regular features in model boat publications; videos/DVD’s and mainstream yachting magazines. Our sport is now widely recognised as just another dimension of yacht racing carried out using smaller sailing craft. There are Regional, National, European and World Championship events which attract entries from far and wide and we are fortunate to have amongst out membership individuals who have competed at all levels.

The BRYC currently has a membership of about thirty and the three main classes of boat we sail – IOM, RM, and R6M – are all well supported. New members and beginners are always welcome and advice – if required - on which boat to buy and how best to set it up and sail it is always freely and enthusiastically given.
