About the day
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. Sailing through, we rejoin the tree-lined Bure and continue past Salhouse Broad and through the busy riverside village of Horning. A little later we will see Hathor sailing past us, after which we turn and follow her back to Wroxham.
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 Wherry Yacht Charter car park at Barton House, Hartwell Road, Wroxham. NR12 8TL, by 9am. A crew member will meet you there and walk with you down the path to the wherry moored on the quayside.
On board our crew will provide tea, coffee and squash, with biscuits, but please bring your own lunch and any other drinks/snacks that you require.
We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our return time may not always be as advertised.
