Barton Broad Open Regatta is organised by a small committee drawn from a number of the Broads sailing clubs. It is funded by the contributions of the Vice Presidents, race entry fees and by a collection taken on the day of the Regatta by volunteer collectors. The safety boat operators, tea hut staff, timekeepers, flag pullers, entry takers, results calculators, trophy polishers and general gophers all provide their time willingly to support one of the most enjoyable sailing days in the Broads sailing calendar.
The Barton Broad Open Regatta Committee would like to thank all those who help to make the day a success, the Norfolk Punt Club for allowing the use of their pontoons, the Nancy Oldfield Trust for the loan of the boat used for taking entries and the competitors for taking part, for providing a magnificent spectacle and for adhering to the Corinthian spirit of the day.
