The Three Rivers Race 2022

‘The Three Rivers Race is one of the oldest remaining on the Broads sailing calendar. Running every year since 1961, usually on the first weekend after the Whitsun Bank Holiday, it is also one of the largest inland yachting races in Europe, encompassing three rivers and two lakes or broads in rural Norfolk. Originally, the plan was to have boats crossing the estuary at Breydon Water with the three rivers being the Bure, Yare and Waveney. However, from a safety and tide aspect this proved impractical so the northern Broadland rivers of the Bure, Thurne and Ant were used instead, and remain the Three Rivers of the Race to this day.’ From the Horning Sailing Club website.

For more information about this year’s race please see this brilliant article by Holly Hancock for YachtsandYachting where you will find everything you need to know.

These are my images shot from Acle Bridge. Sadly time didn’t allow for more but next year I will be back to cover more of the race. The images here are low resolution, if you wish to purchase a high resolution digital download, please email me at quoting the code below the image. Please email for permission to use any of the images.

Congratulations to all those sailed in this remarkable race!
