Thorpe (Norwich) to Bargate and back on River Yare

From Thorpe (by Whitlingham Great Broad) downstream past Surlingham Ferry on to Bargate with it’s Wherry graveyard (the 13 sunken wherries), and back. Noted how the tide flows faster through the dykes in/out of Bargate taking a more direct route than round the longer bend of the Yare.

Distance = 12.2 miles
Av speed (underway) = 3.42 mph
