Club News and Notices     (maintained by the Club)
The Bitterns were designed by Leslie Landamore in 1959 for the Norfolk Schools Sailing Association and approximately 55 were built, the last in 1964. Originally they were distributed around the county at various schools and Youth Groups but the majority were then based at Filby Broad County Sailing Base when it opened in 1961. Thousands of Norfolk youngsters had their first sailing experience in a Bittern and many have gone on to have illustrious sailing careers. In the early 1970ís, having served their purpose, the Bitterns were sold into private ownership. In 1990 a group of owners formed the Bittern Owners Association with the sole purpose of keeping the Bitterns sailing. At the current time 32 Bitterns are registered, many having been restored to their original condition, but others have been lost through the years. The B.O.A. would be very interested to hear from anybody who knows the fate or whereabouts of any unregistered Bitterns. In 2015 the Bittern Owners Association celebrated it's 25th. Anniversary.
