About the day
This trip begins in the tiny village of Ranworth, home to Ranworth Broad Nature Reserve and the beautiful medieval church known as the Cathedral of the Broads. Leaving Ranworth, we pass through Salhouse Broad, which is popular with wildlife lovers and canoeists, and Blackhorse Broad, also known as Hoveton Little Broad. We follow the River Bure past a variety of thatched cottages until we reach the wherry base at Barton House.
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 Wherry Yacht Charter car park at Barton House, Hartwell Road, Wroxham. NR12 8TL. The minibus will pick passengers up at 9.25 and take to Ranworth ready 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.
