COLDHAM HALL SAILING CLUB MEMBERSHIP

Coldham Hall Sailing Club warmly welcomes new members

The Club is situated adjacent to 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, The fine thatched roof seen in the photograph is therefore a recent addition.

Provided by the Club is a locked Dinghy Park, Slipway and Winch,Clubhouse and Wet Moorings (subject to availability)
