« on: July 14, 2017, 10:27:03 AM »
Hi all
As a new winkle brig owner I think it only proper that I come down the broads a right of passage perhaps. I will be arriving Friday lunch and leaving mid day Sunday not sure which weekend yet. Can some one advise the best place to launch ideally a suitable place to park securely my trailer and vw camper. What would be a good explore for the Saturday and a riverside pub overnight for the two nights Are there any weekends that are better than others events etc. All advice gladly received regards matt

Hi Matthew and welcome!
If you go to the 'sailing' section of the website there is thread under 'Norfolk Broads' heading, and much of the information  still holds good I think.
There is good beer at most places (Woodbastwick micro brewery - Northern Broads- in particular) but food is pretty average everywhere I am afraid once you have tired of chicken and chips, burger and chips, and fish and chips! However, there is one exception and that is the Dukes Head Pub at Somerleyton which has excellent food.
Have a great trip.
