hi all,
last week we on our return journey across Breydon water( or the start of Breydon ) along with my parents on there hireboat ,we were turned back round along with many others who were well up in front of us ,to go back to Berney arms and moor up for another 1hr as the tide was still pretty high at Gt Yarmouth bridges . so while we was moored up there we saw a couple of fast boats pass us . then vicky says to me look out the window ,so i did ,and saw the patrol giving them a good ticking off with the old blue flashing light going . 15 minutes later the boats go calmly down to Reedham .
then we hear a shout from the patrol "you can go now from here , take your time it's 6ft10 at the mo ,but by the time you get there you should be ok " ,so all of us start our engines and make the crossing. whlie were crossing a couple of fast boats pass ,really going fast ,giving one hell of a wash ,then coming back making all the boats rock and tumble about ! but when we got near the first bridge ( road swing bridge ) the  BA patrol were there ,( did'nt see them get right up there quick ) again giving these a ticking off and making them go slower on there way back to south end ! as we passed through the first bridge the BA patrol followed along side us and shouted to me " it's 7ft 6 now at the next 2 bridges you should be ok " shouted back "cheers and thanks " and waited for the other craft to pass and watch them through safely ,
so if the crew of that patrol are reading or any BA staff ,cheers and thank you .
cheers  

steve and vicky

Spot on to the BA patrol. Speeding on the Yare is so common with the sea going boats and unlike on the northern rivers where it is more of an enviromental problem, on the Yare, due to the enormous  wash created, it can be very dangerous as well.
