I was thinking along the lines of a gongoozler, the skill shown in the racing would be worth a visit.

By Club race I Assume you mean the 3 Rivers Race, 1st 2nd June this year.
https://www.3rr.uk/ entries for this are still open.
The club started the Summer season from today, and runs through to December I believe this year. With races every Sunday.

Also we have regatta week 100ish boats from an Oppi to a 45ft broads yacht.
The regatta weekend is up on Black Horse broad so unless on a boat it's not visible to the public. But the Monday to Friday is at the club, so everyone can see it. I haven't got the exact dates this year. But it's likely to be 27th July to 2nd August. The Monday to Friday is an open event should anyone be interested. First race about 09:30 last race series about 16:00 but there are Special races up till 17:00. Each race about an hour.
You are welcome to visit the club, but I can't guarantee I'll be there, I could be out racing or on duty on the water.

I have planned to come and watch your club race, watched a few of your videos on YouTube. Unfortunately I can't make it for your show, hopefully you have a good day.

For us the show went very well, over 150 adults tried sailing and I have no idea how many children went out with them. For most it was a trip out in a Rebel or Yeoman.
 A link to a video of the event, you can see all our boats lined up and for most of the day they were all out.. The video covers a lot of the show..

 I hope that works..

The Rebel class is wonderful, there are 16 now the last three are fibreglass hulled but the rest of the construction is the same.

Just a bump up reminder of the show, breakfast then off to guard the car park for me.

I've sailed at Hickling, Horning , Beccles, NBYC at Wroxham. 
I'm biased and prefer Horning,
Most clubs sail in circles at their own little bit of water..

 Round the cans outside the club,
 Round the cans up on Black Horse Broad,
 Down rivers to the pub have lunch and back ( Thurne Lion or the Acle Bridge Inn).
So there's a nice variety of sailing.. 

The winter club Snowflakes SC Snowflakes Snowflake Sailing Club, Horning, Norfolk (sfsc.co.uk) does the same except Black Horse Broad is closed, so we can't use that.

Both Clubs are also some of the cheapest on the broads but you are expected to do duties...
