A flotilla of 12 boats wowed onlookers at an annual sailing event in north Norfolk.
The Stiffkey Cockle Club organises racing and social events for owners and the flotilla to Cley Harbour on Saturday, June 22 was the third annual event in conjunction with the Cley Harbour Trust.
Charles Tyndall, sailing secretary at Stiffkey Cockle Club, said: "The boats are sailed from Morston and Blakeney up the River Glaven to Cley Harbour where the trust make bacon butties and serve tea and coffees.
"This has to happen when the tide is coming in and the sailors have about 45 minutes at Cley before having to return to Blakeney Pit or risk running out of water.
"It is good fun and a very popular event with the aim of raising funds for the Cley Harbour Trust. Twelve boats made the journey this year."
