About the day

This sailing begins in the far north of the Broads, at the peaceful village of Dilham, where the Broads' only canal joins the river network. We journey downstream 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 down the River Ant, passing through picturesque Broads scenery to our destination: How Hill. Having disembarked at How Hill you may wish to explore How Hill Nature Reserve - an area dedicated to the conservation of Broads habitats and known for swallowtail butterflies.  

This sailing will be aboard one of our three wherry yachts: Olive, Norada or White Moth. These surviving wherry yachts were all built by the Wroxham based boatbuilder and designer Ernest Collins. They spent over three decades within his hire fleet, followed by a period of mixed fortunes in private ownership after World War II, before they were reunited in 2012 by the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust.   

Please park in the car park at How Hill Trust, Ludham, NR29 5PG. A minibus will collect passengers at 9.20am and drive to Dilham, where your wherry will be moored, in time for a 10.00am departure.   

We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our arrival and any interim stops may not always be as planned.
