Just stumbled across this site - maybe the members can answer a question for me.

We hired a yacht a couple of months ago and it had been a long time since I had been to the Broads. Anyway the lift road bridge at Breydon has been built since my last trip, and I tried to find a place to put the mast up after going through yarmouth.

The map I had showed a mooring for yachts on the right hand side of the bridge, but all I could see were the channel markers, and I didn't want to get too close to them in case I went aground. so we had to go across breydon with the mast down.

any thoughts ?

I wondered the same thing, and in trying to solve the problem got a lot closer to Post 6 than I ever want to again. I carry an enduring memory of Post 6 approaching while the other skipper on board was furiously winding the mast winch.

In trying to find out what mooring was available, I was told:

"(there are two green structures) ... two green (starboard) navigation posts either
side of  Breydon Bridge. They have two long "jug handles" welded down them to
permit mooring either side of Breydon Bridge. There are two each side of the bridge."

I have not been through Breydon Water since then, and so can't clarify this.
It would help a lot if someone who really knows could give some solid information (or a solid mooring...) on this.

I thought it was just me. I asked a policeman at the yacht station and he showed me the map in a newspaper he gave me and it seem stratight forward. but when we went through I couldne't see anything, also it was pissing down.

from the map it looked like there was a section of mooring

I think the newspaper that seamanstaines reffered to is the broadcaster.

I just looked at my copy and it does appear to show solid moorings called "lay-by moorings for yachts" in between the first two green channel posts.

All I can remember seeing is a large stretch of mud.

Someone here seems to have got it wrong!

The photo isn't very clear but is clear when you open it.

The steel pile channel markers with the "jug handles" are indeed the yacht moorings.  Can't remember how many there are, but there are at least two on each side of the channel above the bridge.  Approach very slowly against the tide, pass a long warp round the jug handle and take it back to a cleat on the foredeck.  The tide will carry you back and give enough room to let the rope go and pay off without hitting the post.  You won't go aground as long as you don't go too far the wrong side of these posts.

The moorings look more like Anorexic Cybermen with verdigris. But it can be done. If in doubt just go along to the Berney Arms.
