I've read lot's of stuff about passing through Yarmouth and I understand that the optimum time to be at slack water - my problem is that we've booked for a week starting on Sept 26th this year - we will be having Salerno (a 30ft bathtub) from Richardsons - I'd love to go South on this trip - on Sunday 26th slack water is at 17.14 and sunset at 18.41 - this should allow plenty of time to get to Burgh Castle or even St Olaves - on Monday I'd like to head down to Beccles perhaps stopping for a lunch stop at Oulton Broad or the Waveny River Centre - On Tuesday I'd like to make the long trip up to Norwich then on Wednesday back down to Loddon or Reedham - the problem is that on the Thursday sunrise is not until 6.54 and slack water is at 7.49 - Loddon would be a 3 hour cruise - would it bee too late to go through Yarmouth 2 hours after slack water?  If so it will have to be Reedham I guess - even then it looks as if we'd be at Yarmouth about an hour after slack water.  I'd be really grateful for advice.


Cheers - Dave

Hi Dave. Salerno has an air draft of 6' 10" so you
should be ok to traverse Yarmouth around 1.1/2hrs
after slack water low, but you could struggle any
later if the wind/tides are not in your favour as
they do affect the tidal height. Ring the Harbour
master at the yacht station the night before as
they will know by then.
Berney Arms may be a better overnight stop.

You could have saved yourself all the hassle and boring trip into Great Yarmouth hiring from a Southern yard!
Good Luck and perhaps welcome to the southern rivers. You'll notice a difference. Not to everyone's taste but plentiful moorings & pubs.

Thanks - that's helpful - yes we'll plan to moor at Berney Arms before heading back north.



Cheers - Dave

Have a great trip, but dont forget that the Berney Arms has closed down. Also with a bathtub like the Salerno you could probably cross Breydon at least    1 -2 hours before slack water. I did it a couple of times when I had a Bermuda.   Cheers

I read somewhere that drinking was
bad for you, so I have given up
reading.  avg45

But if doing so remember that the Bure mouth is very narrow and so you could face a very  strong current going out if you arrive too early.

The Berney could well be open again by that time but the trip from Reedham to Berney is only 45 mins so wouldn't make a significant difference to the Bridge clearance at GY,
