Onboard The Norfolk Trading Wherry, 'Albion'

Post by Miles » May 13th, 2019, 9:33 am

Absolutely delighted to be able to have a look around the Norfolk wherry, Albion at Barton Turf yesterday.
It was in fact open to the public but nobody was really aware of it as it was not featured in the Broadcaster :roll:
Absolutely love these vessels and they are so incredibly sturdy then even when 18.5 stone of ballast like myself climbs onboard the boat does not budge.
The chap there said that with the sail up, the boat would never heal more then 5 degrees.

Was lucky enough to sail on her last summer from Womack to Ranworth and back, can feel the power in the sail when underway, advise anyone to do it if you get the chance.
