Historical Details

Founded in:

On the 9th January 1936 Roy Pike, who was Assistant Librarian at the Great Yarmouth Borough Library, gathered, at 72 Marine Parade in Great Yarmouth, eleven other local people interested in sailing and boats generally. He put forward the idea of forming a club to meet at intervals throughout the winter to keep alive the comradeship and interests of the summer throughout the laid-up period by talks and discussions about boats and everything appertaining to them. The Club was enthusiastically formed and named the East Anglian Yacht Club with a Skipper and a Mate, (titles copied from the prestigious Narrow Seas Club as principal officers), meetings were planned to take place every fortnight. During the next meeting the name changed to East Anglian Cruising Club and Roy Pike became the first skipper with Eric Smith as the first mate.
