We would like to pass through Yarmouth from the Yare a week on Saturday, 5th Oct but the LW times are not good. We need 6'10" and was wondering if we arrived at 3.30 (assuming high water slack is about noon) does anybody think we would have enough clearance. I realise we would be punching the tide all the way to Stracey for the night.

There is a height gauge down at the berney end of Breydon you can use.

Many Thanks Tim

Only use the Breydon gauge as a guide.

We passed in April and we saw ten feet on the gauge.

When we got there the gauge was about two feet out, I assume as a result of the wind direction.

And Breydon was ROUGH

I think Yarmouth is 6ft 9 at ave high water so I would have thought okay in formal circumstances. It is however a long hard slog against that tide.

Daz hi,
Bearing in mind a journey of perhaps an hour I think it's fine to go by the post gauge as long as the  tide is going out. If this is the case there should be more room under the bridges when you arrive at Yarmouth. On the other hand if the tide is coming in the clearance will be less so this needs to be taken into consideration.




Kind Regards
Alan...

Hello Roy, Please post and let us know if you manage this passage next week and give feedback of the experience. We may contemplate the same journey two weeks later in a reverse direction.
