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.
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.
