Who are we?Broach is a student sailing association that has it's focus on competitive sailing. At the moment we have a fleet consisting of 4 varying boats: three J22 keelboats, one Dart 18 catamarans. We are going to buy two new RS 500s (doublehanded boat). We compete in sailing matches at various national and sometimes international events. Alongside our own fleet, we have a vast network of sailors: we've sailed on the Volvo Ocean Race boat of Team Brunel for example!
Only competitve sailing?
Hell no! Broach is much more than that! Sometimes, we just go sailing for fun or you can train to improve your own sailing skills. Aside from sailing, Broach does organise many events, such as a christmass diner, a ski holiday, lectures from famous sailors and many other activities!
Are there many international students in your association?
Unfortunately, we don't have many internationals. However, internationals are always welcome! We have had internationals who have been a member for a very long time. The language we usually speak is Dutch, but it is no problem to talk in English if needed. Joining Broach is also a very good opportunity to learn the Dutch language and culture! So in short, we are a Dutch association, but we are open to international students!
