Hi Everyone,

Although our visit to the Broads in September will be our 10th so far we have always avoided mooring at Yarmouth before crossing Breydon, choosing instead the much nicer Stokesby Ferry. Looking at the tide tables though it appears it will be too late for an evening crossing anyway and the early morning safe passage time does not give us enough time to get down from Stokesby. We really do want to visit Loddon (having just discovered it in May) So it looks like a Yarmouth Yacht Station mooring on the Sunday evening(2nd Sept), to then cross Breydon early Monday. What are peoples experiences of Yarmouth Yacht Satation moorings? The tides must be great here, what`s best to do with the ropes? Is there anyone there to help? Any advice (and `stay away` is`nt really an option this time) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation

Dave n Sharron.

Hi,just returned from from first full week on broads.having never crossed Breydon, we too were apprehensive about mooring at yarmouth YS. On arrival,it was very busy but we soon spotted room near the south end of the staith.Still practicing my mooring, I was lucky enough to get along side without trouble and before I had time to attach second mooring rope, a chap from the ys came along and showed us the correct method of tying up at that location.We found this to be very helpful, along with the other facilities at that location.Hope this helps.

Dave n Sharron Hi,

I have moored several times at Yarmouth without any problems but have not done so for some time.  I have travelled past Yarmouth in recent years and the moorings near the bridges were fairly populated.  On the plus side moorings must be ok but on the minus it could possibly be busy.  The yacht station is manned 08:00 – 20:00 so you should be ok for help and advice for mooring or perhaps they may advise you that you have time to pass over Breydon Water.

I would also think if you stayed at Stokesby and left early say by seven you would be ok.  But that’s me.  Sept 3 slack water 07:12 Sun rise 06:07.  You could enquire by calling the Yacht Station tel: Great Yarmouth tel 01493 842794

If you arrive by 18:00 ish on the Sunday you may be able to make the Berney Arms just on the Breydon fork towards Reedham on the right of the river.  
Sun Sept 2 slack water 19:03 Sun Set 19:40 you could ask the Yacht Station official for advice.

For more info follow this link http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/facilities-and-access/norwich-and-yarmouth-yacht-stations.html

Hope this is helpful.


Kind Regards

"Hi" Dave & Sharon nearer the time give the Yacht station a ring and they will tell you the best time to arrive and if you give them the boat name the chaps will look out for you, they are a great help and we have never had any problems apart from some of the young chaps or even ladies coming back from the clubs after drinking, but they soon go quite and go to sleep, had a great B.Q there last year and a nice hot shower in the morrning before we set off to met friends at Loddon, nice location just in the basin.
Have a good trip and hope it all works out for you.

Kindest Regards Mike

The staff at Yarmouth YS are superb. Agree, phone for advice.

Thanks for all that, we will ring YS for advice, not too keen on staying there but seems to be the best bet this time. It will be worth it when we get to Loddon  Smile

Thanks again

We often try to avoid staying at GYA, However (Like others) I have to say when we have stayed, either a short stay or overnight, the staff there are first class and do know their stuff
