SAILING AND WATERSPORTS
North Norfolk has water, watersports, sailing and so many water related activites at every turn .... from crabbing to kayaking ... surfing to sailing ... there is something for everyone.
Step back in time and experience a journey on a historic wherry. Used in the 1800s until the early 20th century throughout the Broadland region, the wherry played a vital role in transporting goods until the arrival of the railway and road links. Later, wherries were converted or specially built as pleasure crafts. Today only 8 exist: trading wherries Albion and Maud, pleasure wherries Hathor, Solace and Ardea and wherry yachts Olive, Norada and White Moth. Albion can be chartered for daily hire and Norada, White Moth and Olive can be hired for daily or weekly charters.
Sailing and Boating
Blakeney is the north Norfolk hotspot for sailing activity, but you'd need your own boat, whereas at Brancaster Staithe it's possible to hire or learn to sail.
If you'd prefer a more leisurely trip on the water, then experience a restful river tour. With boats of all different shapes and sizes including a double-deck paddle boat, there are numerous trips available.
Whether it's canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, waterskiing or windsurfing Norfolk has a watersport to suit all thrill seekers
Kitesurfing and surfing are also very popular and can be seen year round in the water at either Brancaster or Cromer.
