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 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 9.35am and drive to Womack Water, 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.
