About the day
This sailing begins at Sutton Staithe, which lies at the end of a branch off the River Ant. We will head downstream 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 Broad it’s a short sail to the small, unspoilt broadland village of Barton Turf that sits on the northwestern edge of the Broad.
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 at the Staithe, Barton Turf, NR12 8AZ. The minibus will pick passengers up at 9.25 and take to Sutton Staithe 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.
