Hi every body. im new to the forum and have only been on the broads once last year for a weekend. We are hiring the Caribbean Light 1 from Potter Heigham the first week of June. Just after a decent route plan really. Would like to venture down to the southern broads maybey Nowrich. But dont really know much about the south and about where is good to go and where not to go. Also where would be good places for overnight mooring on the southern broads. Would be very grateful of any advice. Thanks.
Michael.

If you want to go south remember you need to go towards Yaremouth on a falling tide and the same coming back so it really uses up 2 days out of your week so dependent on tide times does take some working out there is a very good tide table below also Cruising times (Listed in "Downloads") taken between all major destinations
There are plenty of good pubs for food down south with better chance of mooring close by at most of them without having to arrive almost immediately after lunch to get a mooring
Im sure some may even work out the excat setting off times needed to get the passing of the law bridges at Yaremouth right!

Using the tide tables ( link below)and distance times (use download
link below) you can work out your route. It is best to go through GY at
slack water,on 2nd June this is about12:30. This gives you time to
get to GY for slack water and over Breydon Water and some where
interesting on the other side.
You can also use the search facility on this page to view answers to
other members. This is a common question and you should find lots
of info. One of the resident experts will soon be along.

Its worth bearing in mind that getting around the North Broads on 1st June may be a little trickier than usual due to the Three Rivers Race starting at 11am on June 1st reaching Potter and Acle from around 2pm onwards depending on conditions. Navigation is not limited during the race but the extra traffic could slow you down a little. However, the long evenings in June should help you with navigation. Maybe worth arriving a little early to see the start before picking the boat up?

The Southern rivers have some lovely places to go, really good pubs too but between these lovely places and nice pubs is a lot of chugging along without so much of the wide open marshes or tree lined banks the northern rivers give.

It really depends if you want to actually cruise to (for example Norwich) and use up a couple of days of your holiday, or moor up at say Wroxham, and catch a train or a bus there, enjoy the city and then pop back in evening to your boat.

If you do cruise down south then naturally one must take note of the tides at Yarmouth - you will find things less packed down there in the season than on the northern rivers.  

Personally speaking I prefer the northern rivers because there is a lot more changeable places and scenery in a smaller area so you can do say three things in one day and each have a bit of a different 'feel' to it having said that I am considering going to Norwich in April - but my motives are to film this not to actually explore Norwich. You could therefore say 'horses for courses' the boat you are going to be on is lovely in design being able to be outside and yet low enough not to worry about bridges too much.

Michael hi,
You may find (River Waveney) Oulton Broad and Beccles worth a visit.  If you are into pubs.  (River Yare) On way to Norwich Amongst others maybe The Ferry at Reedham, The Beauchamp Arms at Buckenham, Surlingham Ferry House, Brammerton Woods End and The Rushcutterss at Thorpe.  For detailed info on crossing Breydon Water,  please follow this link.

hi again. Thanks very much for all your help. another thing is that ive heard rumours about mooring overnight at Yarmouth, that you get a lot of trouble from people coming back from nights out and untying boats and things like that. Just wandering if anybody has experianced this or advises against staying at Yarmouth as we have two you children coming with us. Also has anyone been on the Caribbean Light, did I make a good choice as regards to space ect. Its very hard to tell from pictures. Thanks. Michael

Rumours, don't listen to them, i have moored there regularly for years, the worst that happened was the theft of a deck mop and that was in daylight,what you will need to remember is that there is a big tidal rise and fall,the guys there will help you set ropes to offset this.


regards,Mike

We moor at Yarmouth every year we visit,and have never had a problem. We always spend our last night at Womack water when we sail from potter,great local pub good food and a half hour cruise home. Limited moorings though so don't leave it too late.
