We ventured out onto the Norfolk Broads with two inflatable boats and modest means of propulsion.
We paddled upwind to an open area and then starting from approximately the same point we recorded our drift back.
The GPS tracks seen above and below amount to 01:33:33 hours of drifting, each time for about 200-250
metres at an average speed of 1.1 kph, and one of us was slightly aided by wearing a large brimmed hat in the light wind.

and along to the southern end of Heigham Sound where we mostly drifted about.
