Thanks everyone who has taken the time to look at the site. The information comes from my trusty old (1976) Broads Book which is why I refer to "Yarmouth" rather than "Great Yarmouth" Also I am used to saying "Yarmouth Yacht Station" so it just seems right. I have already made a few alterations following the feedback.

Captain Joshie - Sutton Staithe now added.
Expilot - Potter rise & fall now 4 inches
Grendel - Under bridge No 7 on the Navigating Bridges page it now says:
"When coming from Breydon Water side, turn up the River Bure after passing the yellow post. Do not be tempted to cut the corner as the area is shallow and your boat could run aground."

I have added a downloads page which has blank itinerary plans (which I use for my own holidays) for those who like to plan where and when together with a packing list.

Hopefully more to come

David

Its very quick, compared to trolling through the tables for distance, tides etc.
Would be very useful as an app for mob phones, during cruising!

I know not everyone likes to plan a cruise but it is something I have always done. I like to plan where I will be each day so as to make the most of my holiday. Also the completed plan is nice to look back on to see where we went in previous years. As such I have added some blank plans/itineraries to my site (together with a specimen completed plan) for anyone to use. They are available as both Word documents and PDFs. Also on the page is a link to a packing list. Please use the link to it at the head of this thread.


Regards
David

Liked your Cruising Plan templates David, wish I had had these years ago as it would have saved me time when having to make them up by hand (called my efforts, "Cruising Logs")!
Like you, I always planned the week's cruise  well beforehand , but in pencil in case something occured  last minute that required a change.It was a fun time with my wife and sons sitting round the  dining table at home making up a  workable list of desirable destinations (sometimes it would have taken a month on the Broads to cover them all!)
I included cruising times, weather, tidal info,fuel used, etc. In fact anything that might be relevant for our time afloat and it did save time for instant reference, rather than pulling out various navigation booklets.
I kept every "log" and its nostalgic to look back through them from time to time.
Hope new and experienced crews make good use of your "lists" , nice to see something "positive"!

Andy,

I still have plans going back to the 80's and having made comments enroute so to speak, they make interesting reading after so many years. Part of the holiday is sitting down (which I usually do 2 weeks before the start date) and planning where to go. I usually have a wish-list of visits and the task is then to fit them into an itinerary without causing undue lengths of crusing time.

Regards
David

A useful and well laid out site as one might expect of a website designer Playful Wink

It might be nice to see some of the more traditional boats/yards and even some saily things Smile  in the boats for hire - unless, of course I am observing an unstated link to a Blakes/Hoseasons only affiliated travel business? Confused

Morning DavidH,

Is it me, (it usually is!) or is Reedham railway swing bridge missing from the list?
