Remarks:

The first Norfolk One Design Dinghy was built in 1931 by Herbert Woods of Potter Heigham in protest against the rising price of the 14ft International Class. Proving popular with both young and experienced sailors alike, Norfolks were built in steady numbers throughout the following years, pre and post war, until the last one (other than a replica built more recently in New Zealand!), B86, was built in 1968. The sail number prefix “B” (for Broads) was selected to avoid confusion with the 12ft Nationals which sailed locally and which had already adopted the letter “N”. The class remains very active today, with several fleets throughout the Broads and fortunately with the vast majority of the original 86 boats still in existence.

B17, “Chuph”, looks to be in great condition having had a complete restoration in 2022 to class standards and rules. Chuph has been reborn and she is in supurb condition with no expense spared by the current owner and is being sold complete with a new suit of Jeckells sails, a new cover and an excellent road trailer. She is well equipped and ready to race.
