Discover the Joys of River Sailing
Sailing on a Norfolk River can be very different!
The ever twisting rivers and changing wind and tide, reed beds and trees on the river bank, fellow river users and other sailors around you, all add to the challenge of you making the best of the wind and the river to make progress to get to your destination and enjoy the ride.
With great local knowledge our instructors know every inch of the waters around here between them and they will get you safely to your destination and back home again. There will be fun, laughter, joy and some wonderful stories too. Sit back and relax or hold tight and enjoy the ride!

“We had a fantastic trip aboard Windjammer. The staff at Eastwood Whelpton were very helpful and the boat was clean and tidy on arrival. All social distancing was maintained as we did the introduction before setting sail.”
“Best way to unwind… in the wind! After the fun and excitement of arriving and setting sail, you can feel life’s pressures falling away. Eastwood Whelpton is a lovely family owned boatyard on the beautiful Norfolk Broads. A short stay gives you just enough time to sail up to Hickling and Horsey, two lovely sailing destinations, where you can experience life at a pace it is meant to be. Cannot wait until we go again!”
