About the day
This sailing begins in the picturesque village of Ludham, on the edge of Womack Water. Departing from Womack Staithe we head along the narrow channels of Womack Dyke until we reach the River Thurne. The journey continues to Thurne Mouth where we join the River Bure and then on to the Ant, passing under Ludham Bridge and on to How Hill. This is a beautiful area of the Broads, rich in birdlife. Keep your binoculars to hand! Having disembarked at How Hill you may wish to explore How Hill Nature Reserve - an area dedicated to the conservation of Broads habitats.
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 park in the car park at How Hill, NR29 5PG. The minibus will pick up passengers at 9.30 and take to Womack Water 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.
