Norfolk Punt

Norfolk Punt

The Norfolk Punt was derived from the flat-bottomed gun punts that roamed the Broadland waters in the mid-to-late 19th century. However, at the turn of the 20th Century, in order to get to and from the hunting grounds more efficiently, the punters developed their highly unstable craft to carry a basic mast and sail for travelling with the wind. It is from these humble beginnings that one of the country’s most exciting and powerful racing dinghy classes was born.

If racing in a mixed fleet of classes, the Norfolk Punt receives a Portsmouth number of 879 as a handicap.
