Hi all
First post on the forum - just found it and have enjoyed reading the posts I've dipped into.

Well I can't stay away! I spent my teenage years living in Wroxham, working Saturdays at a boatyard, and that was after many years of family holidays on the Broads. Since then (30+ years ago), I've been coming back for more every so often but it's been a while since I was last there.

Just booked a week for me and my son on a yacht from Norfolk Broads Yachy Co in Horning - starting Saturday and I can't wait!!!!!

So a request for some advice from those of you who prefer to sail rather than motor. Where would you recommend for some good sailing? I don't know what the state of play is above Potter Heigham bridge. Are Hickling and Horsey still good sailing areas?
Barton was a favourite sailing haunt, but where else can you recommend. I've always been a Northern rivers kind of person, but can you persuade me South?

in anticipation.....

Hi Bluemoon,

Hickling ad Horsey remain excellent sailing areas. Good open water with no tree cover. Good moorings at Horsey or the Pleasureboat if you want a pub. If you prefer solitude, then mudweight in the broad or try Deep Dyke or Deep Go Dyke.

For the best sailing don't go up the Bure above Horning, unless it's with a view to enjoying Blackhorse Broad or Wroxham Broad. Similarly goint up the Ant is good fro Barton Broad, but the sailing on the river above How Hill is pretty poor.

My preference is usually to head south and enjoy the quiet and open water of the Yare and Waveney. IN a full week, a few days south is not a bad option.
