PCC first visits the Norfolk Broads

During the first May bank Holiday of 2019 Purley Cane Club made its first visit to the Norfolk Broads. We stayed at Canal Camping in Dilham.  We all had a  great time. Here are some photos of the event

Saturday was very windy and a bit damp. We paddled from the campsite through the old lock and round to the outskirts of Dilham. Returned through hail storm and against the wind -total distance 6.5 miles 

Sunday was not as windy with a lot more sun, but we still had an opportunity to use our sails to sail across the open Barton Broad. Paddling from Stallham staithe, across barton Broad to have lunch  at Instead and finished at Ludham Bridge – total miles 7.5miles

On Monday we cleared our tents and set up a shuttle. We then paddled off form the campsite and through the old lock. We didn’t stop for lunch at finished at Sutton Staithe at about 2pm.  

Thanks must go to Gary for organising such a great weekend, lets hope there is another weekend in Broads
