Jason - current figures put it at around 81 - that is signed up for the BBQ, maybe a few more attending but not making use of the BBQ.

Menu - go to the 2nd post of this thread 'Information' - it's all there

I do hope you meant 0.2m Griff!!

I tend to mainly use MyWeather2.com which has tended to be more accurate in the past than Windguru for wave height prediction. Another one that seems reasonably accurate is Yachting Weather app by Esirion on iPhones.

Ncsl - there is a tidal stream running against us, plus we will no doubt be having photo runs with the two historic s etc, and there is also a craft with us who can only make 5mph at best so I would have though 1600.

But no definite eta planned - subject to change of course

Mbird - yes of course I did, if you get yer specs on you will see there is a ':' before the '2' therefore 200mm, sorry if this caused anyone any confusion or gave anyone a scare  Smile

I wish everyone a great weekend ~ sorry WR won't be there (and certainly not at sea) and that isn't Jason's fault just I'm too preoccupied with another interest!

Water Rail, 81 years old this year and still looking beautful!

Entering Lowestoft

Lowestoft Harbour, Lowestoft Bridge, Oulton Rail Bridge, Mutford Road Bridge, Mutford Lock:-

Ok pay attention,  we have 21 craft (Or thereabouts) to safely navigate the above named locations.
We will cause a bottleneck if we all arrive at the same time, therefore once we have finished ‘Playing’ and photo opportunities the quicker craft can crack on to Lowestoft and Lake Lothing (In company please) thereby breaking up the flotilla arrival times.  Us more sedate craft can cruise along, again in company to Lowestoft.  No single craft will be left solo cruising. and there will be a dedicated 'Sea' boat with us to act as safety boat

12th July Low water at Lowestoft (Mutford) is at 1630 – we are on springs so it will be a very low, Low water

In order then:-

Harbour entrance – if you see 3 x vertical red lights – do not proceed, Green / White / Green – proceed with caution when ordered to do so.


Lowestoft Bridge VHF CH 14 (Port Control) Tel:- 01502 572286
Airdraft average High Water (1000) 6ft – does not concern us
Airdraft average Low water (1630) 13ft
Lifting times are 1430 and 1600 but must be requested with 30 mins notice


Oulton Rail Bridge
At average low water airdraft is 24ft, we shall be there approaching low water so this should not be an issue


Mutford Road Bridge VHF CH73/14  Tel:- 01502 531788
Airdraft average high water 7ft 10”
Airdraft average low water 13ft 10” (Likely to be more on the day due to Low water springs)
Low water is at 1630 which is a bonus
Mutford road bridge is restricted to six lifts per day. They have dedicated set opening times of 1515 and 1645 but will lift at other times if requested.  They will not lift the bridge between the hours of 1700 – 1800, by then we should be all through anyhow. We must organise ourselves so that the highest boats go through together to make use of limited lifts of the road bridge if required.
Skippers you know your own crafts dimensions, if your airdraft is more that 13ft  – please organise yourselves to pass Mutford road bridge in company with other vessels that may require a lift.  The rest of us that don’t need a bridge lift, keep clear of the larger craft, we can go before or after them


Mutford Lock VHF CH73/14  Tel:- 01502 531788
Dimensions 72ft x 21ft
Again we must organise ourselves to make full use of the lock dimensions to keep locking down to a minimum,
It is feasible for four craft to lock up at the same time and we need to do so where possible. Skippers - again look at the craft around you with regards to locking in and ‘buddying’ up (Not sure if that is the correct terminology but it will suffice)
The staff at OBYS/Mutford lock/Road bridge are aware of our intentions for the day, as is port control at Lowestoft.  There is a fee for using Mutford lock £11 per craft.

Lastly ‘Lastdraft’ – where are you?  I thought you had volunteered to sort this out? (Well Mutford Lock then) – No matter I’ve spent the morning on the phone/researching so we are now sorted.

I will update this post under the 'Information' post section 'Navigation' in the normal manner
