Hi, first timers August this year and have hired fair Royale from NB direct.  I wanted somewhere close to Wroxham for the first night so was thinking of either mooring at the yacht club or mud weighting?  Can you book moorings at the yacht club and just how busy will it be?

I may well be corrected on this, but I have always thought that Wroxham Broad was mudweight only.

But, being as it is August you should have plenty of time to get a little further.

Even in April I have made it down to Thurne Dyke in plenty time to moor and have a beer before dark......

I would check, I don't think the sailing club welcome visiting boats as is the custom around the coast.

The other thing is Wroxham Broad is only 15 minutes or so out of Wroxham.

Hi there....i doubt very much youll be able to moor at the yacht club at wroxham broad-  we suddenly found we'd run out of water and as we were nearby & got a very  distinct 'no' when i asked if we could fill up!!! Fair enough we thought & chugged off elsewhere but we definitely felt unwelcome in that broad.
As it was mentioned you'll have plenty of time to get farther along....one of our favourite broads to mudweight in is hoveton broad youll find it less exposed from wind.  Hope you have a great time.

Assuming cloudless skies, we want to mudweight overnight in one of the broads to get the best views of the night sky.
We haven't given much thought as to where yet so any suggestions would be very welcome.

Dave,

When you say you want to mudweight, are you intending going ashore to eat via dinghy? If so there are some broads that would not suit.

An alternative would be somewhere like Thurne Dyke (some folk don't like the bloke at Thurne Lion for reasons you can find if you do research) or Womack water where you are in pitch black but can walk to a pub. Womack however is surrounded by trees so may not match the sky requirement.

You can mudweight at Ranworth and row ashore if you have a dinghy. Similarly at Salhouse Broad, or at Salhouse there are also shoreside moorings, but it is a long walk to the pub.

All the above are pretty easily reached on the first day from Wroxham.

Just a few thoughts to consider

We will not be rowing ashore. We will eat on board and stay overnight on the mudweight.

That opens up South Walsham Broad as another alternative then.

Or St Benet's abbey as another shoreside out in the middle of nowhere mooring.
