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.  As the river banks open out in to vistas of open reed beds we turn down in the Malthouse Broad and the village of Ranworth.

This four wherry sailing will involve our pleasure wherry Ardea and our three wherry yachts (Olive, Norada and White Moth) and you will be sailing aboard one of them. Ardea was the last wherry built, in 1927, whilst the wherry yachts were all built by the Wroxham based boatbuilder and designer Ernest Collins between 1909 and 1915.

Please park in the car park of St. Helen's Church, Ranworth, NR13 6HS.   A minibus will collect passengers at 9:25am and drive to Wroxham, where the wherries will be moored, in time for a 10.00am departure.

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 arrival time may not always be as advertised.
