At the junction of the rivers Bure and Thurne.

Vessel A is travelling from Potter Heigham and will head towards Wroxham at the junction.
Vessel B is travelling from Yarmouth and will also head towards Wroxham at the Junction.

Which has right of way at the junction?

I've never been too keen on claiming my right of way even if I had right of way. I have always preferred to pass behind another vessel including tacking sailing boats as it seems much safer to me.

Sorry the link didn't work, it was supposed to go the byelaw docs on the BA website.

If I have understood the byelaws correctly then the vessel leaving the Thurne and joining the Bure should be giving way to those already on the Bure.

(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) but notwithstanding
any other provision in these Byelaws the master of a power-
driven or manually propelled or quanted vessel crossing from
one side of a channel to the other side or entering a channel
from a side dyke or other waterway shall do so at a proper
time having regard to any vessels navigating along the channel
and shall give way to such vessels.
(2) This Byelaw does not apply to any vessel whilst entering
the navigation area from any waterway within the jurisdiction of
the Great Yarmouth Port Authority

Happy to be corrected if that is not right though.

"As to who has right of way, I was taught to imagine that you can always see the nav lights....If you can see the red one, you give way. If you can see the green one you have right of way"

Quite a good tip, and don't forget the old rhyme: "If both lights you see ahead, turn to starboard and show your red"

The river Thurne is the a joining river to the main river Bure so this should be treated in the same way as the Junction of the Bure and Ant, same also as folks would treat a T junction on a road. That’s how I was taught to negotiate these and other small waters that join a main rivers. Only time this changes is when those flappy things are around.

Best regards

Paul

Must admit cannot quite see what the issue is? Why would anyone coming down the Thurne think that they have the right of way?  (Unless you re in a wherry of course! )

Agree with Paul (PCL023)

That’s exactly how I see it and how we navigate at that junction.

As for sailies - we usually pass behind a tacking yacht.

Hi Vessel A has right of way but would have to give way if B was sailing. If vessel A was travelling from Wroxham to Potter then he would have to give way to vessel B that was coming from Acle. who ever has a vessel on his right has to give way to it.John

Annville.

That would be my interpretation also.

The reason I asked was that I have seen much horn blowing, shouting and hand gesturing at that junction and thought it would be interesting to read the opinion of the forum.

Perhaps we should have a vote on it as we seemingly have a divergence of opinion!!! In my view the Thurne must always be the joining river but.......????
