My wife's parents live in Norwich, so we will be taking her little SIB with us when we go up in the Summer.

I've no idea where to launch yet, so will also be watching this thread with interest.

Blakeney, Morston. Both very tide dependent. Both with unmarked shallows, but great fun. Just talk to any local boatowner there, or look up the seal trip times. Basically, you can leave Blakeney on any tide over, say, 7.8, about an hour before hw, and come back about the same after.

Also Trimingham and Runton, where you can launch directly unto the sea. I'm afraid I don't know any details though.

We are in Cromer too for the Jubilee.

I've planned a trip to Wroxham for some calmer waters on the Broads.
The tide goes in and out a looooong way at East and West Runton.

I'm considering Sea Palling for some sibbing fun but need to phone to see if they can tractor trailer carry my gear across the sands.

sea palling looks pretty ace and not too far away either.. not sure if it`s an rnli patrolled beach ?? though it`s popular with jet ski`s so there must be an area

we went cromer a few years ago and stopped in runton the beaches were ace with a blue sea too lol

what and where do you plan on launching in wroxham as this part of the country is fairly new to us ?

Riverside park Wroxham has a launching platform for small craft - Its not a slipway more of a large jetty.
A weeks licence is 22 (no day licences available). These are available online or from the tourist office in Wroxham.
Its 5mph max. As far as I can find out, any faster is only for waterskiing with a permit.

Speed limits typically vary between 4mph and 6mph with a few at 3mph and are signposted just like the roads - the only exception is Breydon Water near Great Yarmouth where there is no speed limit. Other than speed I wouldn't say Breydon or the area around Great Yarmouth have much to offer.

There are a number of little slipways dotted about that are ideal for a SIB - for example Thurne or Wroxham Broad:

Slipway Thurne[slipway] - Boatlaunch

Wroxham Broad Slip Wroxham[slipway] - Boatlaunch
