Gay's is always popular, I have found it to be one of the few places where moorings can be limited even out of season. If you are talking all of the Hunter's fleet then I imagine they would pretty much need all of the mooring unless some creative rafting was devised.

The whole fleet or part of it? If the former then you might struggle for room unless everyone leaves when they realise whats coming!!!!  Wink

Years ago I used to be part of a large group who hired from Hunter's Yard, and Gay's Staithe was one of our regular moorings (back in the days when the Barton Angler was open).

Looking to the right of the staithe as you come from Barton Broad, the 'wild' bank next to the staithe used to be ok for mooring, with a path of sorts through the woods that met up with the path down to the staithe. Be careful though, as there's some very marshy bits, and I have known people take a step wrong on the way back from the pub and go up to their knees in mud. It was also possible to moor alongside on the left hand side of the staithe, where Ra used to depart from (and which was always too narrow for stern-on mooring and a bit shallow).

Failing that, if you've got a dinghy with you then there's plenty of space to raft up near the staithe, but still in the shelter of the woods.

Sorry all I got a bit carried away with numbers. There
will be 8 Hunter's boats and 8 from other yards/privatly
owned. About 39 people in total. One of our stops as I
said will be Neatishead (Gayes Staith) Also would like to
know what is the White Horse like and there anywhere to
get something to eat in Neatishead as I understand the WH
is not doing food at this moment.

Just to get you in the mood - we moored up overnight next to 8 Hunters Fleet yachts at Gay's Staithe a couple of weeks ago. No problems with available moorings even though during the height of the school hols!

Moored there 30 years ago was the only boat there first week October one night heard scuffling - the rats had chewed their way into the plastic Tupperware ground bait box left on the roof - on going out it must have been dawn, they scuttled off down the mooring rope

Re Gays staithe, the left side is side on moorings, there is enough room for 3 yachts of Hunter's size, however access is needed to the house moorings further on, so double mooring will not be possible on this section.
Also the water is very shallow  2 feet, as you approach the tree at the far end, so for this mooring, go in bow first.
The remaining moorings are stern on moorings, but some rafting up could be done at the far right as the water is wide enough, as long as no one needs to get out.
Facilities are...
Water, with rubbish disposal at the end of the lane.
There are toilets on the car park, which is turn right at the end of the path, past the rubbish bins, then next left, toilets are on the left  through a gap in the hedge.



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