    Arrival

    If you are coming on Friday 17th afternoon / evening:

    There are no gates or barriers at the club so arrive whenever you like. The postcode is PE31 7RB. From the south take the A149. After the roundabout for Dersingham and before the roundabout for Snettisham turn left onto Beach Road. Proceed 1½ miles you will go over the flood defence bank. Continue to the forecourt of Snettisham Caravan Park, a big white Snettisham Caravan Park clubhouse confronts you. Go left across the forecourt leaving caravan park to right. There an unmade road forks; go right leaving lake on your left. Keep on this road. You should see boat masts of the Sailing Club ahead. You’ve arrived.

    NB there are many caravan parks on Beach Road; make sure you are looking for the correct one. If you haven’t gone over the flood bank you haven’t gone far enough.

    At the club drive up over the sea bank onto the grass beach field. Park your boat on the right (north) side of the field. If you have a camper van park it on the right.

    Accommodation

    If you are camping pitch your tent to the left (south) side to the south of the containers and amongst the parked dinghies or on the grass bank that abuts the beach. Members are willing to accommodate visitors. Enquire by email to publicity.sbsc@gmail.com

    Otherwise, this is a good place to look VisitWestNorfolk.com

    TOP TIPS FOR CAMPERS

    The beach is shingle beneath the grass. A hammer is the best way to get pegs in the ground.Its mid summer so light very early, which wakes up the oyster catchers which make a lot of noise. You’ll probably sleep better with an eye mask and ear plugs.

    Bar Opening times:

    Friday: 6.00 pm onwards.

    Saturday: 9.00 am then all day.

    Sunday: 10.00 am onwards

    Food:

    Friday night: There is a club BBQ you may use if you bring your own food.

    For local food we recommend: Snettisham Beach fish and chip shop which you’ll find just on the sea - side of the flood bank, or the excellent Chinese restaurant: www.silkroadheacham.com / 01485 572268

    Breakfast from the Club on Saturday and Sunday

    Saturday Night: get stuck into the Commodore’s Mid Summer Quiz with a glass of Sharp’s Doom Bar, Stella Artois, Adnam’s Southwold Dry Hopped Lager, Bud Light, Aspall Cider , or a cocktail of the day. Wine is served in 4 sizes, small medium large and bottle. Our in-house professional catering has not re-started post lockdown. We are exploring whether we can lay on a Saturday evening meal for you.

    Any questions please email publicity.sbsc@gmail.com or phone 078 3333 2055
