Hi all

After an excellent week on the broads last sept my good lady and I have booked another week in may. This time we have hired Pacific Shadow from Pacific Cruisers, must say I'm very impressed with their customer service already.
I do have a question I hope someone can answer. We are starting on 4th may and would like to know if the power boats are on thurs evenings on Oulton Broad in may?

Thanks in advance

Steve & Deb

Hi All,
I am also on The Broads for a week comencing May 3 2013 and intend visiting Oulton Broad. If power boat racing is on, is Oulton Broad closed to river traffic? or is a section cordoned off to allow safe passage. Could anyone please advise.

Kind Regards
Alan...

I think you will find there is safe passage on one side of the Broad usually there is a Broads Authotity boat in attendance.

I would be inclined to moor at the yacht station before the power boat racing starts and enjoy the show.

Thanks for that Alan.  We shall get their early if the day falls right. We pick up the boat from Wroxham on the Friday and aim to be at The Bridge Inn at Acle that evening ready to cross Breydon the next morning.  Unsure if we are going Norwich way first. or Oulton Broad

Kind Regards

Hello Alan,

I would head towards Norwich first and dependent on the tides I would aim to get to Reedham or Reedham Ferry on the Saturday night, my preference would be the Reedham Ferry.

There is plenty of pubs to overnight at on the way to Norwich. You should be able to take in Beccles and then aim to be at Oulton Broad to overnight on Thursday night.

Regards
Alan

Alan Hi,
Got to have boat back at boatyard in Wroxham for Friday Morning May 10 so we can't be at Oulton on Thursday night.  Will probrably leave Acle on the morning of Sat May 4 and head for The Beauchamp Arms. Have allready checked tides.   Maybe visit Surlingham Ferry, Brammerton Woods End and The Rushcutters before heading for Oulton Boad via The Reedcutters/Red House, Reedham Ferry and The Waveny. Want to be back on Northern Broads maybe Tues May 7 or Wed May 8. Sorry Steve and Deb didn't mean to take over thread but I thought you may also have been interested to know if Oulton Broad was accessible while racing is taking place.

Kind Regards
Alan...

Steve hi,
Looking at the powerboat fixtures for 2012 they were most if not every Thursday evening from late April till late August.  In addition it looks like all Bank Holiday Mondays commencing lunch time during this period. I think we will be aiming for the Bank Holiday Monday May 6 in hope. I will check closer to the time as the dates are yet to be on the Oulton Broad web site.  This is their link.

Thank you all for your replies. Hopefully we will be able to catch a few races this year. Last year we hired from Wroxham and didn't fancy the long journey to be back there for the Friday night.
