Meet up at The Locks?

I'm all for a Southern meet, not just because I live here, but because it's interesting, beautiful and by and large, there is space. The only things we don't have is Hickling Broad or hundreds of orange topped mobile flat-afloats dispensing empty lager cans!

Jenny Morgan,

Well, our dates are also fixed, as mentioned by Maffman and it seems we are both on board (separate boats, lol) for the week commencing 12th August, so I have to vote for that of course.

A Southern cruise would make life so much easier, no need to try to arrange a remote handover and although I've never been on the boat during children's holidays before I imagine the South is much quieter. And it would be lovely to have Charlie and her dad along.

Hey up Matt LOL
JM, The Locks would be great but I believe several
boats can't get there because of the bridge.
Besides, not enough room.
Also, can you imagine a flotilla coming down the Chet?  Playful
Somerleyton would be good as Hire boats could moor in
Leboats marina leaving extra room on the public
moorings for private boats until everyones
arrived/ready to depart on the final leg.

At Last!! The days are now getting longer!
Just a few more weeks and it will be SPRING!!!!

Two comments to make:
-Lisa you are shown in te holiday calendar as week commencing 18th Aug-Not the 12th!

-Bill- Are you best placed to lead the flotilla as you appear to be confusing Loddon with the Locks Inn!  Playful Wink

PS-I know Bill does really know the way.

We are supposed to be going to scotland boating this year but the dates mentioned would allow us to stay over somewhere for the weekend and join in. And meet old and new freinds.

just something to consider , but does'nt the vintage wooden boat assocation hold variuos events during the year/ summer at various locations on the southern side ? beccles marina being the main 1 that sticks out , so may have to pick your dates or location  carfefully ,

Wow I have to say the idea of a Southern C in C is handy.  Ranworth to Beccles in one afternoon was a long trip, especially going back the day after a heavy nights 'meeting'.   Also it worries me that people are sometimes discouraged from coming south, the area is already dying enough. As with all boating if you are sensible, careful and pay attention it really isn't difficult and has its own beauty.  

I think marinas such as WRC, OB, Norwich  or Beccles are the fairest way to go.  I would hate to think of us all blocking up a 24hr mooring, plus the possibility that it could already be busy.  The Loddon meet years back was at Pye's mill which is not BA mooring but the basin at the bottom was still there for other holiday makers who wanted to be in Loddon.  

Things to bear in mind;
1.  Seamaster club meet at Beccles - Clive (waterbuoy) should be able to help with this as I know he is a member.
2.  VWBA meet at Beccles - Griff should know about this one, its often around August Bank holiday and is sometimes the same date as Seamaster.  
3.  Oulton Broad gets booked up in advance especially around the airshow week, but as Richard/Brandywine virtually live at the Yacht station he can maybe find out when they are quiet, if asked nicely.
4.  Geldeston - although beautiful; a) I'm not sure I want everyone to know just how lovely it is, b) bridge clearance in Beccles is fickle!
5.  Lastly my holiday dates  Playful Wink    (only joking) - Martin, Bless you for thinking of me.   I've Pm'd you.

Hope this helps.  

Charlie

BuffaloBill - Looks like we'll be following you then!

The VWBA meet is normally the weekend of 20th Aug, this year the weekends fall on 18th and 25th Aug so it will be one of those weekend for their annual national rally, and a lot of owners go to this event so the NBF if intending to visit Beccles will have to avoid the VWBA event. I've just checked the VWBA website but it needs updating and I have not got the latest 'Log' to hand.
