Hi all

I will be out and about the first week in march and just wondering if it would be possible to do a return trip to the southern broads during the week with a boat requiring at least 10ft clearance at Yarmouth.  The tide times dont look great for the week so just wondered what any of you might think my chances could be!

many thanks

danny

As you probably know, noone will unfortunately be able to give you a definate answer as tidal conditions as predicted are always influenced by other factors. Might be able to say a week before but even a week is too long sometime.....!

As Marshman has indicated until the time it is difficult to predict with any certainty heavy rain etc. has quite an effect on clearance.

1st & 2nd March are low points of neap tides so clearance is not good but from Tuesday onward heights are around average chart datum LW so provided no heavy rain you will have no issues on clearance but the times are not very favourable but would envisage you should be able to clear (all other things being equal) around 1.5 hrs before LW.

Depends on which way you are transiting as to whether daylight will allow you to reach a safe mooring but I would suggest you should be able to just do it.

Hi thanks for the replies!  only just noticed!

I was hoping to go south on sunday 2nd March, Low water according to shorebase is 1211 on the sunday which is fine and then return on weds 5th march low water being 1526 which wouldn't be too be bad for reaching at least stokesby not long before or after dark.

Surely 10ft at yarmouth on those days wouldn't be too much to ask!

regards

danny

It also dependes on the amount of land water passing hence the problem.

Bill is right, this weekend was a classic case with the heavy rain giving a maximum of 18" rise and fall at Yarmouth despite what the tide tables said.

I am afraid these things because of the weather are not cast in stone but fingers crossed for some dryer weather near your trip.

That doesn't sound promising, 18inches that could only have put the bridge clearance to about 8 and half feet at best, not good!

I sent an email to river control at carrow and they promptly replied estimating (conditions permiting) a clearance of 10ft 6inch on saturday 2nd and a greater clearance on weds 5th due to springs.  

I suppose I will just have to check the weather and wait and see

regards

Hi tonstep, you wont have many worries with silver spirit as far as bridge clearances are concerned, its got a sliding roof which but dont know its actual airdraft so you will need to check, even so you still need to take notice of the tide tables and try to arrive at yarmouth in either direction at slack water, the bure flows quite quickly through yarmouth on an outgoing tide and you will need to take extra care.  Have fun!
