Hello everybody, my son is looking for a place (a broad preferably) to launch his small 10 foot sailing dinghy for the first time. Somewhere near the Yare would be nice, but anywhere in Norfolk would do. We can drop it off a riverbank, no need for a slipway.
    Any suggestions anybody? Many thanks

the new slipway at cantly next to the reedcutter should be ideal or the new inn at rockland broad.

Remember to get a visitors toll before you launch.

For a 10 foot sailing dinghy and the first time I would suggest the upper reaches of one of the Broads rivers or a broad would be best - less tidal current.

Look at www.thegreenbook.org.uk under Green Book / Facilities for Launching and Recovery .

Also http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/facilities-and-access/slipways-and-launching-points.html

Also, I am not sure what the arrangements are at Whitlingham Country Park - you could try there.

Costs about £10 - 12 to launch at Whitlingham.

Rockland or Surlingham fit the bill
Rockland Broad is a short way down the dyke
And you can launch either side of the river at Surlingham ferry and a short trip to the Broad

Many Thanks Tim

I have a link to slipways/launching sites maps on my BA moorings page.  I have tried several time to put a link direct to The B.A Launcing Maps but I think the URL/Address is too long so I have put a link to the relevant page on my site and you can click on slipways to the top right of the chart.The map section is page 6 of the PDF.

Is there any access to Rockland broad other than the slip at New Inn does anyone know?

If we put the sailing dinghy in at the slip we cannot get onto the main broad unless we are luck with the wind - then we might not get back.

It's onlt a 10 foot dinght easily dropped off a river bank

I would say Hickling broad would be your best bet
