About the day

Join us on our final sailing of the season. Leaving our base, we'll head away from the bustle of Wroxham with a variety of cottages and grand houses on either side. As we leave habitation behind we'll enter Wroxham Broad, a wide expanse of open water enjoyed by pleasure craft and where birdlife can be spotted (and sometimes otters!) From there, we continue along the tree-lined River Bure until we meet our oldest wherry, Hathor on her journey from How Hill. The full fleet will then sail together back to base. It's a magnificent sight!   

This sailing will be aboard Ardea, which is Latin for Heron. She is the largest pleasure wherry ever built and often referred to as the most luxurious wherry in the WYC fleet. She will be accompanied on this sailing by 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.   

Please park in the Wherry Yacht Charter car park at Barton House, Hartwell Road, Wroxham. NR12 8TL, by 9.15am. A crew member will meet you there and walk with you down the path to the wherries moored on the quayside.    

We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our arrival and any interim stops may not always be as planned.
