Sail the Wash is dedicated to enabling the small craft sailor to explore England’s biggest embayment and its adjacent coastline. From Gibraltar Point in the west to Morston, Blakeney and Cley in the east, this last wilderness is one of the outstanding coastal wetlands in Britain, if not Europe.
If you’re tired of marina hopping, this unspoilt region could be just the alternative you seek. Rich in marine wildlife, the saltmarshes are one of Britain’s most important feeding grounds for wading birds. It’s also home to the largest UK colony of common seals.
Now with the benefit of modern, all afloat mooring facilities plus the charm of its well established drying harbours, this cruising ground is a must for all who sail. Explore the rich variety of our ports and anchorages, and everything they can lead to.
Making plans is the key to getting the best from a visit to this fascinating region. Even if you’re planning a short visit, take advantage of all the local knowledge available, from pilotage, where to moor and what’s on offer ashore. With so much to explore, you won’t be disappointed. Browse our website to help plan your trip. Or contact one of our Sail the Wash harbours directly for the ‘inside track.’
The stunning Sail The Wash harbours offer something for everyone. With new visitor pontoon facilities in King’s Lynn, enjoy mooring your vessel within a town steeped in history. The Yacht Harbour in Wisbech provides safe, secure moorings within the River Nene and 128 fully serviced modern marina berths. Or one of many harbours in North Norfolk offer a natural haven for a voyage to our picturesque coastline.
