Yes early June is quiet except for one thing...
The 3 Rivers race, 24 hour race starting 11:00 Saturday 1st Jun At Horning sailing Club. around 100+ dinghies and yachts heading down river..

There is nothing to stop you going through the race, but it might be an idea to just stop at say st Benets and just watch them all go by before proceeding on..

The Saturday  you'll find it difficult to find a mooring at any of the 3 pubs in Horning, as it will be jam packed with people watching..
If you are around that Saturday it will be extremely busy fron Horning to Ludham Bridge and down to South walsham Broad, after that it thins out a bit..
More info on the race at...

and a video of the start one year https://youtu.be/mmF18-q9paw

Glad we asked now, as realised we need to plan carefully.  Useful to know about the Sail Race on the 1st June !! - will be wonderful spectating, but maybe a day to avoid 'getting off' the boat !  Cheers everyone

Welcome
Try the lady at The Wroxham Hotel she will probably help, may be charge but take it off your meal.
If you are in a hire boat you can moor opposite just before the bridge in NBD boat yard free and stern to it gives a hard surface for the wheel chair and superb access to Wroxham. If you let them know your situation we are sure they will help.
Try Herbert Woods very helpful as well, at Potter their yard has easy access to the village,as the public moorings opposite leave your boat very high in the water and a large step down to the path.
Regards
Marge and Parge

We managed to get a mooring outside Ferry Marina a couple of years ago when the Three Rivers Race was on but you will have to be early as it does get busy.

Saturday is changeover day so only Ferry Marina’s own boats will only be permitted to moor there.

I don't think you have indicated where you are planning to start from which might make a difference.  The southern rivers are a lot more peaceful but have a distinctly wider tidal range.  Advanced arrangements with boatyards even if it meant making a 'small contribution' would be my choice because if arriving in working hours almost certainly another pair of hands would be forthcoming.  They might even go back to the old ways and lay in some stores for you (milk bread eggs etc.) to save you having to come ashore

Setting off from Brinks Bill.

Welcome to the Forum!  Wroxham, as most refer to it but it is actually Hoveton on the Brinks side of the river, has a large supermarket with good parking and access.


If however you are pushed for time on your travel to the yard you may consider shopping online with Tesco and arranging delivery to the boatyard.  If this is something you might consider then give the yard a call first to confirm.


Have a great time!

Sorry missed that!  A couple of points, if you can get hold of a bathroom handrail (the kind with two suckers with stick on the surface) you may find that useful to give an extra handhold.  Barnes can I think provide a bed guard useful not because you might fall out of bed but beds on boats tend to be quite low and something to 'lever yourself up with' can be good
