From the land
The Norfolk Punt Club moorings are located beside the Staithe at Barton . Just north of Hoveton and Wroxham, only half an hour from Norwich. Directions to the staithe from Norwich are;
From Norwich, take the A1151 through Wroxham and Hoveton.
About 2 miles after leaving Hoveton, turn right onto an unclassified road signposted Neatishead and Barton Turf.
Go through Neatishead (beware: blind double bends!) over the culvert bridge and take the first turning right (Hall Road), signposted Barton Turf.
On reaching Barton Turf, fork right beside the green, signposted “Staithe”, and continue straight on down Staithe Road.
Parking for members is available at Barton Turf Adventure Centre (remember to display the NPC car sticker). Guests can use the public car parking facilities on the staithe and walk down the path to the club moorings.

Please read the attached document should you wish to use the club boats; Club boats conditions of use
The Yeoman is a good sized keel boat. It has excellent all round performance making it ideal for family use. It is easy to control but has the performance to provide exciting action when racing. It can be raced with either 2 or 3 crew. The class is countrywide with various fleets on the Norfolk Broads and others in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the South Coast.
2 x RS Fevas
The RS Feva is simple to rig and easy to sail yet gives great performance with an asymmetric spinnaker. The Feva has spread rapidly all around the world and has training and racing programmes for novices through to world championship level racing. Perfect for two young sailors or adult and child teams, the Feva can also be sailed single-handed.
2 x Laser 2000
A very good FUN boat, this is a great boat for racing or just pottering. It will take 3 adults or parents and a couple of children.
Comfortable to sail with a nice high boom and a self draining cockpit and is very easy to sail. Furling jib and an asymmetric spinnaker to play with. It is fairly forgiving but can still challenge you. It has a training main that can be reefed so is great in a blow BUT there is a racing main available if folk want to seriously race the boat – Mark Elson looks after that.
One of the Laser 2000s is set up for a single trapeze.
Many of you may have already sailed a Laser 2000 at Minorca Sailing or other Med sailing schools.
One of the most popular single handed boats for adults. Very simple to rig and launch but you are likely to get wet!
2 x Toppers
The Club has two toppers, a great single hander for young people and smaller adults. They can be easily reefed.
2 x Oppies
The Club has two Oppies which are small, single-handed sailing dinghy intended for use by children up to the age of 15 (depends on size of the child). It very popular and the ideal boat for children to learn in.
The club is run for the benefit of its members. The committee are elected by members at the AGM and are responsible for ensuring the club runs smoothly.
