Salhouse - Stern on moorings,

I have spoken with Toby - he is the ranger that looks after the moorings at Salhouse Broad.

There are a total of 38 mooring slots available (Ignoring the three / four down at the play area), that is sixteen to the left of the beach and twenty two to the right of the beach.

I have reserved ALL of them for Friday the 24th JUNE.  There is a mooring fee payable of £6 per craft overnight, however Toby has kindly given the NBF s group discount therefore mooring fee's will be £5 per craft Smile  so please make sure that you are flying a forum flag OR have the forum logo stuck to a window. (Logo's can be printed off by going to the bottom of this page and clicking on 'Make my Logo')

Here's how it works - After the raft / photo shoot, Albion will slip from the raft and proceed to berth up alongside the terra firma, NBF members then can go and berth up stern on and have a visit visit onboard Albion, hopefully either making a donation to her cause or signing up as a friend. (Albion will not be staying overnight and will not be paying a mooring fee). There will not be room for all of us to berth until Albion has departed so I respectfully ask volenteers with tenders to stay mudweighted if required. Once Albion has departed that will make room for further NBF craft to berth.  Again if there is insufficient room, tenders will come to the fore. I'm assuming not all members will be staying overnight at Salhouse though.

If we are stuck and oversubscribed for berthing slots then I'm quite happy for craft to put their bows between 'B.A' and my neighbour (whoever that maybe) with there mudweight deployed over thier stern.

Wroxham / Horning trip boats - Toby will contact the relevant organisations that run the trip boats and inform them that there will be around 40 odd craft rafted up on Salhouse Broad for an hour or so. He tells me that he knows the folk in the offices and that this scenario happens when they have their annual raft race get together thing and won't be a problem for them. The raft will be opposite the beach area anyway, not covering the two entrances to the Broad.

Now, who intends:-

BBQ-ing?
Visiting the 'Fur-n-Feathers'?
Visiting 'The Bell'?

The Fur-n-Feathers is not dog friendly inside, but dogs are allowed with owners at the tables outside.

I don't know about the Bell as I have not been there in an age.

I intend to let Macie have a swim and retrieve Richards handbag dogs a couple of times Evil Grin

I will then either:- join in with a BBQ and/or visit the Fur-n-Feathers and/or visit the Bell, with/without my crew as the case maybe but with Macie.  Confused? - so am I  Playful Wink

Griff,

Overnight for us please and most likely BBQ.

We do have a tender but with one toddler and one baby would appreciate a mooring to visit Albion.

If anybody wants to borrow our tender they are more than welcome.

It sounds to me that nothing can possibly go wrong.
But - just in case - we must all take cameras. OK?

Griff :- "So, when you are approaching the raft from astern of it as previously mentioned, if you make a hash of it (And there is no pressure here as there will be only 100+ pairs of eyes watching you) KEEP GOING AHEAD come round and have another go but move out one or two places so as to allow the craft following you to take the slot that you had your eye on"

Well I know what I will be doing all afternoon then. Hope I dont get too dizzy!

"Knows what a Cringle is" ... erm...

Communications


A lot of boats will have some sort of radio equipment on board.

Could I suggest the following if using radio for communicating, both whilst under way, and to help with keeping  in contact with the rest of the "fleet" whilst traveling and mooring etc.

Some boats had CB equipment on board.    I would suggest using channel 35.
With CB it will give a good 4 to 5 miles coverage and assist to all or most groups where each flotilla are located and to ensure no one has any trouble in case of breakdowns, late departure / arrival etc.

The smaller PMR radios.  I would suggest the middle frequency / channel.
These are good over a very short range  - boat to boat whilst in transit and whilst mooring at Salhouse.

Any one with a VHF Ham Radio, I would suggest using 145.625 Mhz ( the repeater GB3NB ) initially.
This will give  full Norfolk coverage of about 30 miles.
Once closer together I would suggest using 145.275 Mhz + or- one channel if busy.


Some may have VHF Marine band on board but would ask that they do not use this unless an emergency.


It may be a good idea to know who has what type on board and in which group they will be in.
