April 1999 - Sponsored down river sail from Norwich To Bramerton


Father, son and grandson combination Derek, Kevin and Andrew Appleton pictured with their model yachts which were sailed down river from Norwich To Bramerton in a sponsored sail raising funds for Norwich Sea Cadets. Junior Sea Cadets followed the event from another craft and senior cadets accompanied the yachts in canoes. In a fast run, assisted by the tide and a fast following wind, the passage took only one hour and twelve minutes.

Which way shall we go

Start preparations

A study in concentration

A busy river

Happy helmsmen at the finish
