About the day
This sailing begins in the peaceful village of Dilham, where the Broads' only canal joins the river network. We will head along narrow channels, passing through picturesque Broads scenery until we reach Barton Broad, the second largest of the Norfolk Broads and rumoured to be where Admiral Nelson learnt to sail. This area is rich in wildlife, so keep your binoculars to hand. From Barton we continue on to Sutton Staithe, which lies at the end of a branch off the River Ant. This stretch is prime territory for otters and kingfishers.
This sailing will be aboard Norada. Named after a famous racing yacht, Norada was built by Ernest Collins in 1912 with a more slender hull compared to previous wherries. She is the only one of our wherries with a boom.
PLease turn off the A149, Stalham to Potter Heigham road towards Sutton Staithe Hotel,
NR12 9QS. As you turn off the A149 please park in the first car park on your left. The minibus will pick passengers up at 9.30 and take to Dilham in time to sail at 10.00.
We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our arrival and any interim stops may not always be as planned.
