Eastwood Whelpton is a small family operated business that specialises in the hiring of sailing yachts for holidays on the Norfolk Broads.
Our fleet of 16 yachts includes some of the best sailing hire yachts available, equipped with everything needed for a comfortable and fun holiday for families and groups of all ages, size and ability. Our yachts provide for crews of between 2 and 8, but we also can cater for larger groups with multiple yachts up to 80 persons and can provide high quality sailing instruction and RYA sailing qualifications as a part of your holiday.
The joy of sailing traditional boats in Norfolk in a safe and engaging environment is that it provides fulfilment to sailors of all abilities and experience. For the beginner it takes away the concerns of sailing at sea, or in a tippy wet dinghy, for the dinghy sailor it provides an environment where the joy and skill of sailing can be shared with other family members as part of a comfortable and dry experience, whilst we would challenge any skilled sea sailor to come and test their skills in powerful traditional gaff rigged Norfolk Cruisers in the close confines of the Norfolk rivers – they will leave Norfolk as better sailors!!
