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.
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
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.
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. http://www.oulton-broad.com/tag/oulton-powerboat-fixtures-2013
