Scope and content

Manuscript account of the tour, in diary form, perhaps by Helen Moodie; Huia Onslow is referred to as 'H'. The yacht is boarded at Potter Heigham, and Horning Ferry is reached by night on the first day. On the next day they sail via Heigham Bridge (where the sails must be lowered) to Horsey Mere, then on to Hickling Broad; the second night is also spent on board before the yacht is left. The writer, 'H', and 'the man' appear to be the only crew.

A humorous tone is taken throughout, with references to Huia's snores and a disastrous spilling of sausages.
