Norfolk Punt

Norfolk Punt

Developed from 19th Century Broadland gun punts, the modern Norfolk Punt is a restricted class with a max length of 22'. A 16.35 sq. metre 'white' sailplan, unlimited kite and twin trapezes power this sleek 200lb boat to a PY rating of 875. Built in either cold-molded wood, fibreglass or carbon fibre, boats are raced primarily at Hickling Broad SC and the Norfolk Punt Club (Barton Broad). Norfolk Punts have competed with great success at handicap regattas throughout the country.
