Yeoman Kinsman Golden Jubilee
National Championships
29-30th June 2019

Norfolk Broad Yacht Club (NBYC) will host the 50th Anniversary Yeoman Kinsman National Championship. With the line-up including several past champions, alongside the current title holders (Bill and Diana Webber, sailing Swift), this year’s five-race competition promises to be intriguing, exciting and hopefully lots of fun for all involved. As always the Championship will attract the country’s best Yeoman sailors, but will also give an opportunity for racing at all levels, and indeed all age groups from teens to octogenarians.

But the weekend is about more than racing, it is also about camaraderie and friendship. And so, across the weekend a number of social events will be held, including a formal championship dinner on Saturday 29th June, which will celebrate the history of a special much loved boat.
If anyone is interested in sponsoring the event they should contact NBYC Yeoman fleet captains, Bill and Diana Webber (

Welcome to the Yeoman Kinsman Association

The Association represents both classes and in particular its members' interests. The website contains all you need to know about the boats, including measurements and general rules.

But of course sailing is also about comradeship, and so here you can also find up-to-date news on the active fleeets that sail in the UK. If you are interested in getting involved, or would just like extra information, please just give us a call.
