A former lady sailor, I owned a 32ft cruiser a few years back and sailed mostly alone unless family or grandchildren visited. I still cant keep away and Captain's Blog is a favourite on utube!
I want to 'test the water' again so am looking to hire a small cruiser to sail solo on the Northern Broads during March or April at a good price. I see Herbert Woods have discounts at present on some boats; Dawn of Light, Evening Light, Malvern Light, Evesham Light and Shimmering Light, but I've no idea if these would be a good or best option for a mature solo sailor.
Also, it would be handy to know what other people find useful to take on hire boats in addition to what is provided. As for the boat, I would need a heating system, a bow thruster, a sandweight winch and good maneuverability. I write, so WIFI would be handy but not if it sends the price sky high.
Does anyone have local knowledge or user info to help me find the right boat and boat yard at a good price on the Northern Broads?
