Can anyone with a bit more expertise on tide times etc please help me with route planning?

We are on holiday from Reedham on 26th July for a week. We would like to head north, but I am aware of the low bridges in Yarmouth (we need 7ft clearance) and the need to pick the crossing time appropriately for Breydon Water.

Could anyone please work out when I can get over Breydon Water and safely up towards Acle? We have the boat from 2pm or thereabouts on 26th July if it helps, and would like to get north asap. I dont want to cock it up with the tides and bridges and have to turn back across Breydon.

Thanks

hi if you look at the bottom of the page you will see a
Tide Tableslink. For the 26th it
says 20:42 slack tide, thats the time you need to be
there will take approx 45/60 mins to cross breydon
waters depending on wind direction . Coming back
depending on the day you looking at slack tides in the
morning, the afternoon slack tides are going to be to
late for you to travel. You can put your dates in a
print off the tide tables for the week you there have
fun and enjoy.
(Adding this bit as been said I forgot about the sun
setting bit so prob a better idea to wait until next
day see later post).

Welcome.

You're not going to get across on the afternoon of the 26th (that is a Friday by the way).

As already stated slack at Yarmouth is about 2042 but sunset is 2055, so twilight will be starting with full darkness about 2130, you cannot cruise in the dark.  You need a minimum of two hours to get from Yarmouth to Acle, indeed Reedham to Acle is a good four hour trip.

I would suggest you boat down to Berney Arms and have the evening there.  You can set off between 0800 and 0830 northbound to hit slack water around 0900 and be at Acle for about 1100/1130.

Under downloads at the bottom of the screen there is a cruising times guide.

The time given, will mean stopping in Great Yarmouth, not
recommended for your first night. You won't be able to get far
enough north to a safe mooring ie Stracey Arms before it goes dark,
so  you might be better off starting the journey from  the Berney arms
on the Following morning.

best regards, Richard.
I can't wait to be back on our boat on
the Broads.

Sherriff hi,

I agree with 16E, to moor up near The Berney Arms over night and make the trip over Breydon the next morning.  Don’t forget to leave plenty of slack on the ropes as the rise and fall near The Berney could possibly be around 5ft.

Here is a link to more info on crossing Breydon Water.
http://www.mynorfolkbroadsboating.co.uk/crossing%20breydon%20water%20to%20yarmouth.html

I have also attached a tide table relevant to your weeks holiday as you will also have to plan to pass Yarmouth near slack water on your return journey.

The tide table is provided from www.shorebase.co.uk

Kind Regards

This is bound to get some comments but....
Try to arrive at GY yacht station 30 minutes after slack water.
The tide from the Bure continues to run out for around
that time after it has turned on Breydon and that way
you will get the full benefit of a tidal push up to Acle.
You will still have plenty of room under those bridges,
usually about 8' 3" at that time.
This is how I plan it and have done for many years
without any problems.

The older I get...
The better I was....!!

I'm with you on that point BB.  I almost posted a comment that it is better to be a bit late at Yarmouth, to get a pushfrom the flood, rather than too early.  (The usual caveats about air-draft allpy to this remark).

Our policy is to get to the mouth of the Bure and watch the yellow post until we see the ebb stop running past the post, this may entail a quick loop onto Breydon to kill time. We set off up the Bure when the ebb has stopped.

Hi  I love crossing Breydon very early morning my ideal low water time is04.00  leave Reedham at first light to arrive at Bure mouth  1 hour 30 mins after low water  moor up right at the end of Yacht station moorings  Get the frying  pan on for a full English breakfast lets say 1 hour cooking and eating  now the tide will push you to Acle .You must be away before 07.45 or  the BA. staff will charge you 6.00 £  Stay safe keep all crew inboad andwithin sight DO NOT FOGET SUNGLASSES as even at  10 AM you will be faceing the SUN and the glare off the water can make  the posts hard to see Fred
