As always it seems the tides don't run well for us in October so we have to consider when we cross Breydon and transit Yarmouth. We have no major concerns height wise with an air draft of 6'3". Our hope is to go thru Yarmouth against the ebb tide on Saturday 8th, roughly three hours before low water. We are heading for Stokesby overnight which leaves us planty of time to make Potter on Sunday in good time for low tide for the Bridge.

The alternative is to overnight at Burgh Castle which means an early start the next morning (Low water at Gt Yarmouth is early ALWHI) but we would still be transiting yarmouth an hour before slack in order to make Potter for the 11:00 low

Any suggestions welcome please.

Hi Paul
I can't seem to make your timings add up so that you are not going to be travelling in the dark. Sunrise is supposed to about 7-00 and sunset about 6-00. So depending on the weather you may loose or gain a bit of light. At the moment I think it would be better to come across Breydon on Sunday morning but I can't really see how you will make Potter for your low water.

I often have sat down worked out what time to cross Breydon to catch slack water at the Yacht Station but have only once got it spot on once in about 20 years. I have been across Breydon at high water and just cleared the bridges (I needed 6 foot 9 inches ) but would have played around on Breydon if I could not have got under. (Fast boat). A lot of crossings have been in a boat needing 9 foot 6 inches plus to clear so you don't have much choice but to go under at low water. Have also crept up the Bure against the tide, it can be very slow work but you can't always pick a perfect time to cross. My thing about Breydon and Gt. Yarmouth is that you have to be prepared to cancel the crossing. Early mornings could also mean mist or fog which would be a no no for me crossing Breydon.
