hi all
am i right in thinking that the flooding tide is shorter than the ebbing tide. so flows out for about 7 hours and in for 5....ish?
and does it vary the further inland it gets

The tables at bottom of the page lay it out well and can be set from the day you arrive

We usually print out the Tide Table from below and take with us but in general we always say 6 hours in and 6 out.

Sometimes the weather can dictate the tides in as much as it seems to not be doing much of either but that is in the extreme.

Women dont nag they just
point
things out...

To get an idea of what has happened tide wise in the past 5 days which shows the trend there are the records from the EA Gauging stations updated daily - more often in flood prone times - here is Brundall https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/station/6205?direction=u
showing a rise and fall last night of about 2 ft

Iv'e been coming to the Broads since 1963 and have always
used the '5in 7out' as a quick guide for the tides. It's
not completely accurate but near enough. You won't go far
wrong at that. Wind, air pressure and rain can affect the
height of the tide but not when it happens.
The moon basicly controls that but wind direction at
Yarmouth can hold the tide in.
At the start of the year, I use the tables at the bottom
of the page and print the entire years' tides off.

That basic rule of 5 and 7 works pretty well for the Broads and is one I always use too - in normal years there continues to be a largish flow downstream from the large catchment area so thats where the 7 comes from!

But realistically as has been said there are really just too many factors at play, which are variable, to try and be too specific about it all and it is only in the lower reaches that tidal flows can be related more to the tide tables you generally see published.

The most important rule you have to understand however, is that tides cannot read and seem to do their utmost to confuse those who can!!!

i have printed off the tide table and have done for a while but it never seems to tally up with reality.
ill pay more attention this time. if im right the tide should be going out therefore going with the tide to reedham from freedoms next tuesday 14th afternoon, then a 6.30 start next morning to cross breydon for 8.30 passage through yarmouth

I normally use the Tide Table from below in advance but nearer my trip I use The Broads Authority figures which can be found HERE. They detail both high and low water but only provide figures for approx 1 month in advance.

The figures they provide are for Gorleston (Yarmouth Bar) and quote that you need to add an hour for Yarmouth Yacht Station.  The time differences for other areas are listed at the bottom of the page. Cheers

Kind Regards

As the tides then are approaching springs, the 2 hours you anticipate from Reedham is probably plenty.

If I was planning that, I think I would have another 1/2 hours kip or not rush my breakfast!! It may mean pushing the first of the flood a little longer across Breydon but I think if you leave that early you will be be punching that ebb through the Yacht Station for longer than you think!

And for what its worth, tides tend to run later than earlier!

Marshman is correct. Although the water level will be
rising at the Yacht Station, the tide nearer the surface
is still ebbing. Sounds rather odd but if you spend
any time at the YS you will see what we mean. Going from
South to North, arrive at the YS around 30 minutes after
the published slack water time. Assuming that airdraft
is not a problem of course!
