D.S.W.Z. Broach (Delftse Studenten Wedstrijd Zeilvereniging Broach) is the student competitive sailing association in Delft. To be exact, we are the only student sailing association in the Netherlands that focuses on competitive sailing. Due to this unique focus, our association is composed of motivated and enthusiastic sailors.
As an independent sports association, Broach provides students with the opportunity to sail competitively at any level and at affordable cost. Whether you want to sail several weekends per year, improve your skills, participate in the weekly local competition or train for the world championships, it’s possible at Broach!
Next to sailing, a large aspect of our association is creating friendships, socializing, and creating room for personal development. After all, we are a student sailing association! Every Tuesday, the members meet for drinks in the Ruif and different activities throughout the year keep friendships and contacts going strong. Two famous and yearly recurring activities are the Broach After Winter-sport Special Beer Festivity (BAWSBF) and the Christmas dinner.
Should you be bursting with energy after your sailing activities and would you like to contribute to Broach and be more active within the association, there are many committees that allow you to create, plan and organize different events. The Kolk committee is a great example, organizing the ‘Slag om Delft’ every year. Like to network? Join the sponsor committee! More the partying and BBQ type of person? The Akcie (Activity committee) is your new home! Prefer to show off your workshop skills and keep the boats in perfect condition? The fleet committee would love to have you. There’s a spot for everyone in Broach!
Broach provides the perfect balance between sailing and the social aspects expected in a student association. Do you like to sail and have a good time? Then Broach is perfect for you!
