Yes, but only if I time the bridge clearence wrong or to wait for the tide to turn if going upstream otherwise I wouldn't touch the place.

I stayed overnight last year as the tide was first thing in the morning. Necessity and all that, but I don't like the place. Ideally I'd only moor there long enough for masting.

hi all ,
we do not stop at Gt yarmouth moorings now , but what we now do is moor up at stracey arms ,and get a taxi into town ( usaully wednesday market day ) to spend the day there with the kids on the beach . it's so much better there , you out the town area ,(so no need to worry about louts knicking stuff or undoing ropes ) no great rise and fall with the tides ,so easier to get on /off the boat .
cheers

steve and vicky

A personal opinion....but we avoid GT Yarmouth like the plague.

It's the opposite of everything we come to the Broads for.

We have moored there a couple of times, normally to wait for the tide.
Have stayed overnight once too.

Not keen on it.  When you see the hire boats coming down river with the tide and they try to stop, turn  and moor !!!
Boy  not a pleasent sight when your on a small 23 footer !.

If I,m crossing Braydon, then I moor at the Stracy Arms and plan the crossing for the tides.
Same on the way back.

You are spoil sports  Tinhat I bet a lot of the kids on here go for the idea of a look at the beach and a stick of rock made before their eyes, maybe even a donkey ride. Smile

With my former "crew" Yarmouth used to be a regular stop, though I would admit to planning my arrival to meet slack water and often hung around the ede of breydon waiting for the tide to hold.

I would always moor then facing upstream, knowing that when we cam to untie the tide would be running out again, which awlays seemed to make casting off easier as you could hold the boat reasonably steady with the engines slow ahead.

Must admit to not having stopped there for many years now.

Regards
