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.

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.

Miles of riverbank at The Locks. Can always leave the top hampered boats at Beccles yacht station and cadge lifts off low boats. Agree that Somerleyton is an option but at a price, dear old pub! Reedham, Cantley and Beachamp Arms all have stacks of moorings.

Jenny Morgan,

The Broads is NOT a National Park, but it is a National Treasure!

We are intending to attend the VWBA rally this year as well. We missed it by one day last year. On the way back to Stalham from Oulten Broad we had so many shouts of "your going the wrong way"
It was a lovely weekend that one as well....

Mentioned to the boss that I had volunteered for this and she left me alive and said "Oh ! I saw some of the conversations".... Pheeewwwwww..

OK LOOKS LIKE DOWN SOUTH IT IS THEN!!!!!!

so now the dates to work on avoiding the VWBA meeting and such..

NUMBERS WANTING TO PARTICIPATE COULD EFFECT WHERE WE GO MIND YOU.. If lots Beccles is a winner, if fewer then Pyes Mill could be up for it. If medium then Geldeston could be good (bridge height permitting)

At this point I should say that last year we took malanka through the old bridge twice, not at lowest tide, with the top UP!!! so it can be done..

Up she has Airdraft of 8'2"..

When we get an indication of how many we can finally decide where and if necessary make bookings with nice Farmers or the guys at the Beccles yacht station.

Will someone who knows how to more than me (Griff) set up the sign up bit on the events....pretty please!!!!!!!!!!

Can I just add that the dates etc are not mine to decide so they may end up being another time so as not to coincide with the VWBA meet or any other do.
Once everyone decides on a date then we will proceed from there, won't we Fiddy! His idea after all.
The only thing to consider is the 6 week school holidays if looking about this time of year. Everywhere will be heaving!
When I mentioned Somerleyton, it was'nt as an overnight stop but a meetup for anyone from the Yare joining in.
As I'm retired, it doesn't make much difference when the do is. The only limiting factor for us is the fact that Jenny is her mums carer and could possibly put a spanner in the works. A very small chance, but a chance non the less. Confused

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

If no-one disagrees (hint) I will make an executive decision on the dates as our availability is not universal either...

Sorry about that....

I will put something up later so I can start the sign up page...
