The article makes sorry reading. Does anybody know if the yacht station is OK during the daytime or is it better to just turn straight round?

We moored there in the daytime during May - it was a weekday in the school holidays.

No problems at all - we left the boat & went off for the day. The kids like to have a day in Norwich at the shops, museum and cathedral. It's such a lovely city. It would be a real shame if it became 'out of bounds'

There was a member of staff on duty who chatted to us for a while and asked if we were staying for the night. We said no, and changed the subject. I thought he was going to ask us for mooring fees, but maybe he would have gone on to recommend spending the night elsewhere?

It seemed absolutely fine during the day. Being so overlooked and with a uniformed member of staff on the quayside, it didn't seem prime vandal country at all.

Wouldn't like to spend the night there at all though - far too many pubs & clubs, and far too many people around.

i have moored at norwich several times over the years,though not recently because brother lives there. and it is a smashing day out, it is a shame if the yob mentality has broken out there.

I think mooring in the daytime ok, but overnight a bit dubious.

You may find this thread holds a bit more info here

All the best

Sad to say but yes ALL my hirers are warned not to moor overnight either at the yacht station or the new bridge moorings which if anything are even worse. If I had anything to do with the navigation commitee I would feel quite strongly that the BA should dis-associate itself from the Norwich Yacht Station completely, even to say that patrols stop at Carrow Bridge

Find this all very sad as Norwich is one of my favorite moorings. Personally I have never had any problem with noise or yobs always mooring at the far, Bishopgate bridge end of the yacht station, however after these reports will now have to think of mooring at Thorpe and busing it.
I suppose the only answer is 24hr surveilance. Inevitably this would push up the mooring fee but I would pay a lot more at Norwich than for Gt Yarmouth and hopefully when it got around that the moorings were safe, patronage would increase.

don't forget the other thread
http://www.the-norfolk-broads.co.uk/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=22&Topic=1207&keywords=Norwich

I'm still trying to remember the name of the pub on the opposite bank between Carrow bridge and the Lord Nelson Frown
