this is my 1st post the last time i was on the broads was at least 20 years ago and since then a lot of yards and mooring places have dissapered. Iam going with my family next april for a weekend from herbert woods their website is good it has a journey planner which i can't work out for instance potter heigham to horning says 21/4 i can't find any explanation of what this means???
is there another website that could help as i'm trying to work out how far we can go the 1st night and where we need to be the 2nd night to make sure we are back in the yard for the 3rd night.

I think 21/4 is 2hrs 15 minutes.

Try looking in the downloads section at the bottom of the page there should be a chart for travel times.

The main factor is the time that you pick up your boat, and the time you actually leave the yard.

For example when we hired from Herbert Woods in August of this year, even though we were first to arrive and be processed through the office we were the very last to leave the yard.

On the first night I headed out towards St Bennett's with the intention of mooring in the mouth of the Fleet Dyke. When I got there, the moorings were no longer there so I pushed on up into South Walsham Broad and mud weighted over night.

The night before our return to Herbert Woods I always aim to moor at either St Bennett's or Thurne Dyke. Gives SWMBO a chance for a shower with hot water before arriving back at the boatyard but also means I get a small cruise in before having to leave the boat.

I have an automated distance/time calculator on my website: norfolkbroadsboathire.biz

It shows you distance and travel time between 37 points along the Broads including Potter Heigham and Horning.

David

We have just been away for a short break with Herbert woods and due to the fast fading light only managed an hour of cruising on the first night.

Also when reading the times the weather and tide can effect times so allow a little extra time. We stopped in Acle at the bridge inn on our last night, got up and left at 7:40 and we just made it into the yard at 9am so 20 mins more than the states time. Although on a short break I'd also say stay somewhere like thurne dyke and have a short cruise in the morning. Smile  
Oh and get up early and make the most of daylight!

Am I missing something? On your distance calculator
Wroxham to Ranworth is 2.5 miles & 45 min. But Ranworth
to Wroxham is 7 miles & 1 hour 45 min.
