It would be nice to get an answer from one of the boatyards as to what they tell new hires about the "rules of the road"

The 'skippers manual' onboard Pico Light from Herbert Woods said "always pass on the middle of the river".

we had the same on Lapwing (norfolk broads yacht co) Blakes handbook.

But here's a story that you all might find interesting. Just last month we were coming back from Wroxham, with the mast down (don't ask why!), on the right hand side of the river.

We passed the corner before Salhouse Broad. A fairly straight piece of river, with good moorings on one side where the fisherman were doing there thing.

I could see the next corner, about 1/4 mile away and two boats were coming at me, one passing the other. Not an unusual happening, and they were both doing the limit or less (I think it's 5 mph there).

Next think I know, a third boat starts pasing the two boats who are abeam of each other. All I could make out of this third boat was the huge bow wave.

Well we all passed at about the same spot, our small yacht was well thrown around as were the two other cruisers. Some of the fisherman got a bit damp too.

While this is going on the skipper of the boat, was totally unaware of what was going on while his throttles where wide open, but at least his cabin was quiet enough to talk on his mobile phone.

A friend of mine was telling me he reported a 'Gin palace' for speeding past him and swamping his boat to the Broads Authority. They took it very seriously and came out and took statements.

He was told that the owner of the boat said "he was not driving a friend was" The Authority made the owner take an inland course before allowing the boat back on the Broads! Smile

Now that is impressive - glad to hear that the BA do take action, although I doubt they could do anything about holidaymakers.
