Hi there and hello to everybody!

I've booked a cruiser with some friends for a weekend break (friday to monday) at the end of june/beginning of july.
We start off in Stalham on the Friday and are hoping to moor in Gt Yarmouth for the Saturday evening.
The rest of the itinerary is pretty much unplanned as yet.

- how long does it take to get from Stalham to Great Yarmouth?

- we start our journey in Stalham at 2.30pm.
Depending on how well Wayne Rooney's toe has recovered etc. tounge-in-cheek, there may be an important England World Cup match at 4pm that day, and the craft we have hired apparently has let's say, a very minimal television set!
It would be great to watch the match in a suitable pub with a 'colour' television set that has a screen bigger than a matchbox! The pub must also be within 1 and a half hours from Stalham. Can anyone recommend  a suitable pub?

- also, can does anyone have any other suggestions for places to moor for the
fri (somewhere halfway between Stalham and GY)
sat (great yarmouth)
sun (somewhere halfway between GY and Stalham)
also, pubs with good pub grub worth visiting?

absolutely any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

(If these questions have already asked by other members and answered many times before I apologise for being repetitive!)

thanks. Smile

Assuming England makes it through to the quarter final(which they should being the best team in the world (how many are English?)) you would be best off staying in  Stalham for that match.

I'm sure the yard will do there best to get the boat ready by 2:30, but I wouldn't bet on it, they might have to do repairs after the last hire.

Hi Manicminer,

Welcome to the forum Smile

Please don't rely on your boat's telly if you want to watch an important game. The problem is reception, not the telly. The Ferry at Horning might be showing big screen games, but get an early mooring if they are. Last time we had to moor across the river and row across in the dinghy.

BTW "Manicminer" was one of our all time favourite PC games. Now you have got the theme tune running through my head!!

Perhaps there should be a thread on your all time favourite games, or perhaps there already is. Something to do on a Bank Holiday Smile

Cheers

John

Quick, how many blasts was it for "I am manouvering with difficulty" !!!

Hi

If you are going from richardsons and you can get to the yard for about midday your boat should be ready for you to board and be on your way by about 1.30.

Dave.

Thanks for the tips!

Dave, I didn't think to consider that Richardsons may be able to let us take the boat out a little earlier. That would be very useful and I'll certainly speak with them to see if this can be arranged.

And Rojomo, I didn't take into account that the tv reception will be pretty much useless, another reason why it would be essential to get into a pub for the game. (And I would agree, Manic Miner on the ZX Speccy was indeed the finest game of it's time - or though maybe not as good as it's succesor, jet set willy!)

Thanks for the help so far!

ps. No doubt England will get knocked out in the second round by the Germans on penalties and all this preparation will be in vain! But you never know....

Some of the pubs you can reserve a mooring for your boat and find out if they have the match on and ring them up.

If I remember correctly it takes around 5 hours to get to Yarmouth, if you use the tides to your advantage.

5 hours is about right.

There are lots of interesting places to moor between Stalham and Yarmouth, but remember that most of them are at the start of the trip. Once you get beyond Acle Bridge, moorings get few and far between. Really, there is only Stokesby and Stracey Arms before Yarmouth on that stretch of the Bure.
