Norfolk Broads Sailing 2014

I was lucky enough to be invited to spend the week sailing a 1930s wooden yacht around the Norfolk Broads last week. Sadly James was busy but I went along anyway. It was amazing. The boats (from Hunter’s Yard) are mahogany sloop rigged cabin yachts with no engines, just a quant pole for maneuvering.

The weather (sunny but plenty of wind) was wonderful and the people (six boats full) were lovely. I only knew two of them before I went but by the end of the week I felt I’d gained a bunch of new friends.

Firstly, meet Wood Anemone, the boat I sailed, skippered by Sara.
