We are pleased to add a new 24-hour mooring 'Berney Mill 2' which is immediately downstream of the existing Berney Mill moorings.

The new site adds 30m of double-alongside mooring space on the River Yare.

There is sufficient width at Berney for triple mooring, heaven forbid! Double is reasonable, for the boat on the outside, the one on the inside doing all the work in regard to the tide. For double mooring at that location, okay for us experienced bods, perhaps a bit questionable for newcomers to the Broads.

Yes JR, that's my point really - not the width but the tides and stepping over boats. For newcomers especially,  as you say.

Thought safety was a top priority ? It's one of the reasons I dont support the double mooring thing as a general option , for providing more moorings. Slip between two boats, different heights, different shapes etc ! Its a very different kettle of fish to getting off onto solid ground especially for newbies or children, etc. But then here we are back with points that were many, and all discussed at length, in the long debates we had here about double mooring,  

I'll shut up!

I know that it has been discussed before Karen. But it has to be repeated. No shame in that. We have an aged population on the rivers who are also challenged enough without adding to the mix.

That,together with the so called newbies, requires a more focused approach by the hire boat companies, the Broads Authority and dare I say, this forum.

Having said that, a good post.

We are still waiting for the publication of the MAIB report in relation to that gruesome death at the Gt Yarmouth yacht station last year. Inevitably there will, I'm sure, be recommendations which perhaps the BA is already aware of. I note that the BA is seeking a number of volunteer rangers for next year, maybe as a result of forthcoming recommendations. I do wonder what qualifications relevant staff have at the Authority? Advocating rafting up by novice boaters at an unstaffed 24hr mooring at such as Berney does strike me as being unwise. Granted that a lifeboat or air-ambulance could access the site quickly but for land-based services, road access is no easy matter.

An accident waiting to happen IMHO but then again so are many of the B.A.'s recent decisions.

My understanding is that the BA is legally the 'competent port authority'. With that thought in mind, I googled the term and this came up:
https://www.iala-aism.org/wiki/dictionary/index.php/Competent_Authority

Competent or incompetent authority? In truth is the authority actually interested in these navigation duties? I understand that the Authority has formally applied to de-register the Broads as a 'port' thus to remove themselves from the relevant requirements.

Oh what a epic spot to have some additional moorings on the edge of Breydon, surely one of the most desirable on the broads for holiday makers and smugglers alike.  With all its possibilities for adventure on the gateway to the sea and it’s deep water low tide windy channel. Superb work from the Broads Authority for providing the moorings and I hope all the forum members get to enjoy them before long.

The B A said it was allowable to double moor! whats the problem if its to difficult for you dont moor there it's no more difficult than Yarmouth or Reedham where double mooring is allowed.well done BA for supplying more 24hr moorings in a pleasant location. John
