hi there ,
heres a few boatyards out of Brundall to check out first
http://www.alphacraft.co.uk/
http://www.silverlinemarine.co.uk/
http://www.swancraft.co.uk/
these are the only ones now to operate from Brundall ,so you may have to look around other boatyards if you don't find anything there or there already booked up ,many of these MAY BE WELL BOOKED NOW !
places to visit ? well Loddon /Reedham / Beccles /Oulton Broad / Rockland St Mary are all great places ,each of them have something good about them ,
tides you'll need to check when you've decided a date,but remember the tide is much ,much stronger and fall drop than the Northern Broads , but take care and you'll do great ,
cheers

Hi

What boat have you booked? If it will pass under Beccles bridge then a trip down to The Locks Inn at Geldeston is a definate must do!

Hi - you're sure to enjoy the South Broads. Whilst there are busy spots like Reedham, they are very much quieter than the North. The areas nearer Great Yarmouth have a very remote feel with unbroken vistas & absence of trees. You get variation though, because the Yare above Brundall & the Waveney nearer to Beccles are more 'tree-ey'. The Beccles to Geldeston stretch is fabulous & like being on a separate, remote waterway altogether.

Zoedan,

enjoy, the Southern Rivers are truly lovely. I don't get to that end nearly as much as I would like, mainly becdause we sail and rely (usually) on hired yachts, most of which are on the Northern rivers.

Hi
Your sure to like the Southern Rivers.We like Oulton Broad.Beccles and the many moorings up river to wards Norwich..If you dont fancy mooring in Norwich take a train from half a dozen spots along the river if you fancy a trip to Norwich.Enjoy

Hi, a couple of things for your next year's cruise, firstly congratulations on getting 'your' boat, second when mooring at Reedham remember you MUST moor against the tide (i've seen so many not do that and come seriously unstuck in my 11 years at Reedham Bridge) and when coming in slow and steady always wins the race, also if the quay attendant is there listen to thier advice. Thirdly, when going underneath Reedham Swingbridge remeber to give us a hoot and a wave.

Hi Zoedan
If you are going the week 21-28 July then the first question you have to ask yourselves is: Do we like jazz?  That is week that the Water Rats Jazz Band will paying its annual invasion of the Broads, this year giving the north rivers a break and menacing the south.  They are starting from Brundall as well this year but the itinerary will not be fixed until the Spring.  Keep up to date by visiting their website
http://www.water-rats.info/ The band is only as big as the opening photo for the first and last numbers which are 'All in'.  Other times it slims down to Dixieland proportions with changing personnel.

BOF - Clive
