Event Summary

The 2019 Norfolk Expedition will be a two-day weekend, Saturday 27 - Sunday 28 April, with a brieifng for participants at BLYM on Easter Saturday, 20th April at 12.00 mid-day. For those who aren't availble for the briefing an alternative arrangement can be made.

We are hopeful that we will be able to travel to Norfolk on the Friday evening and stay on the boats overnight on Friday, giving us a longer day sailing on Saturday. We will not know until about a week before the trip if this is possible because it depends if the boats are hired out the previous week.

Arrangements are as follows:

  • Travel to Norfolk on Friday 26th or Saturday 27th April. Dinner in pub in Ludham village if travelling on Friday, and sleep aboard overnight.
  • Two days sailing Saturday and Sunday on these herritage cabin yachts, passgage plan depending on weather.
  • Overnight stop with dinner ashore at a family-friendly pub.
  • Return to Hunters Yard Sunday afternoon, with departure by 4.00pm for the journey home
The price per head will be £135, which includes a refundable deposit of £25 per head if all boats are returned without damage. This price includes:
  • Two days sailing on a four-berth Wood-class cabin yacht
  • Escorting powerboat
  • Breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks (for which we will share preparation duties)
  • Mooring fees
  • Mattress, pilows and blankets (you will need your own sleeping bag)
  • Lifejackets
Not included in the price:
  • Travel to and from Norfolk
  • Evening meal ashore
  • Waterproofs can be hired from BLYM if you don't have your own
This trip has run successfully for many years. Exploring the Norfolk Broads in this way is a timeless experience and a great adventure. It's real live Swallows and Amazons stuff. Bookings will be accepted on a first come, first served basis and are subject to there being sufficient experienced helms in the party.


'Well organised and very welcoming.'
