Hello again

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we're taking out the Richardson's Capri at the end of July.

I've been planning to meander the North Broads, but have been reading that the South Broads are more tranquil and relaxed.

Is there a marked difference between the two? I'm definitely needing a relaxing holiday, so if the North will be very busy (and I'm guessing it's one of the busiest times of year), we might head South.

Any advice is very welcome!

South is liesurely cruising from A to B and not seeing many other boats these days. North is much busier. Having said that there are some very popular spots in the south too and some spectactularly beautiful ones too. Rockland St Mary for instance is a gem of a place. Pyes Mill and or Loddon as well.. Somerleyton...long list.....Bramerton.. Beccles , Geldeston etc

We are heading south oursleves this Saturday morning and aiming to moor up at Somerleyton Saturday evening...Its a long old drive from Stalham but the kids wanted to go south straight away in one hop.

The old girl (boat)will just plod along and it really sorts her out for the rest of the week too.

With such good weather next week the South is fav for us....

The south is much quieter, still lovely places to visit.
However we love coltishall and wroxham!
Hard call.
you'll enjoy no matter what.

The South deffo more chill out than North this time of year. Personally I learned how to handle a cruiser much better down on The South, mooring into tides etc. Could not agree more IF moorings are available at Rockland St Mary is a lovely quiet spot.Loddon a must also, down The Chet. Whatever you decide have a great holiday! Smile

Sitting here in Norwich YS whilst the crew go shopping. We left Rockland this morning and when we arrived last night there were 6 boats moored in Rockland, all looking like they were settled. After we had finished asking them to move up a bit and help us, we had three more moored up. Big thanks  to all those guys who moved up for us.

Hello fidear45
just to let you into a little secret the moorings at Rockland apart from one on the port side as you approach are stern on , mind you with the new mooring  sign from BA they will wan't all to double moor even when stern on leaving all boats looking like thunderbird one from the satellite image.
Regards
Marge and Parge

Years ago before they made the basin bigger at Rockland, turning a 42footer for stern mooring was good fun !  LOL
