Passing at High Water Slack means whichever way you go you will be cruising against the tide meaning slow progress and using more fuel. Low water slack is the best advice you heed. I have recent gone from North to South, arriving at GY at LWS . The cruise down with the outgoing tide was a pleasure and the boat was virtually on tick over speed. The aircraft was 8'2" and I went under the bridges with plenty of room.

On the way back up North I like to follow the tide down either the Yare or Waveney and tie up at the Berney Arms or the Fisherman's Bar.

I wait for Breydon Water to fill up over the mudflats as this reduces the head current. I then set off and although I punch the tide across Breydon I get the full current behind me up the Bure.

The reason for this tactic is that Breydon fills up before water flows upstream on the Bure. The water at GY may rise but the Bure still flows downstream for a considerable time.

In saying this, my boat has about a 6ft airdraft, boats with higher airdrafts may need to be careful doing this trick. However, it saves a considerable amount of fuel.

Shreck.
