Wherry Yacht Charter
Caring for the Broads' last wherry fleet

We have wherries available for charter and public day sailings this summer - contact us now to make a booking.

Can you help us keep sailing? Our wherries only sail thanks to the hard work of our volunteers. We welcome all assistance, from crewing and boat maintenance to organisation behind the scenes. Becoming a Friend is the gateway to a host of opportunities, but there are various other ways to support our charitable work. All help and income allows us to invest in restoration and brings the fleet closer to sailing together again.

Olive is seen here on her official return to the water, alongside Norada and White Moth, at Malthouse Broad (Ranworth) in 2013. She is now in full charter condition and our attention has turned to our pleasure wherry Hathor. See our news page.

Latest news

Our sailings are almost complete for this season, and we are pleased to say the remaining trips are sold out. If you'd like to get early information next year, or even join us as a volunteer on board, in the boatshed or behind the scenes, you can always join us! Alternatively, join our mailing list, or watch for news on Facebook or Twitter.

Maintenance and restoration are still a priority. Hathor's hull restoration has now been completed, which ensures the dry conditions that will enable her interior to be brought back to its full glory over the rest of 2014. We also have a Lead Appeal - can you help us re-ballast our wherries? Or perhaps you'd like the chance of a day charter for just £1? Please visit our News page for details and updates on all of these.

p>Our Friends still have events to enjoy: our Annual Dinner, complete with eclusive afternoon sailings and an update on Hathor's restoration, is on 20th September, while our annual Quiz & Supper evening will be on 8th November. Joining as a Friend gets you access to these events and more.
