About the day
This sailing begins at the popular boating centre of Stalham. If you have time you may wish to visit The Museum of the Broads, a museum dedicated to Broadland life. From Stalham we journey downstream, passing along the River Ant 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 to Ant Mouth where we join the River Bure, travelling upstream 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 Stalham 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.
