I can def say with some certainty that Ranworth staithe gets full at the weekend during October half term. I have seen it every year for the ten years since we have kept our own boat on the private moorings. There is a school trip which has come here for many years and they are spread out over a fair few boats. And they always come to Ranworth at the weekend. It is of course possible that eventually, that plan will change, but I can only tell you what has happened thus far as my crystal ball isn't very reliable at the moment
If you are trying to moor in a tight ish spot just ensure a crew member pulls the dinghy round to the front of the boat if you are going in astern (backwards to a stern only mooring such as Ranworth) or to the other side if you are going into a side on mooring.
Steve mentioned life jackets, and I should have too. An absolute must.
Take care, and enjoy the trip - you may seriously get bitten by the bug!
