Day charter raffle

Since 2013 we have run popular raffle draws with the prize of a day charter. We offer just 500 numbers in each draw at £1 each, giving you an excellent chance of winning, and when all are sold we simply open a new block of 500 entries for sale. The prize is a day charter for up to 12 passengers, to be taken on a day of your choice in the next sailing season (either weekday or weekend, but subject to boat and skipper availability as with any booking). So far our raffle draws have brought in £5,000 to support our work.

Raffle entries, in any quantity, can be purchased on board, at any of our events, via periodic reminders in the Gaff Line, or by contacting the Friends. We draw the winners at our Annual Dinner in September/October. We will never sell more than 500 entries per draw but we reserve the right to to close a raffle early and draw a winner from fewer than 500 entries (thus increasing each entrant's chance of winning).

Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust is the promoter of this raffle and is licensed by Broadland District Council, number BD/293.
