Hi again,
I must agree with ruby , I really don't see the point of rushing about the broads just to get from b-f , I thought the point of a broads holiday is to relax - unwind ,take a slower pace of life ,

Hi and welcome to the forum, I would also recommend staying North there is more than enough to see and do in a week, also the tide times for Yarmouth are not helpful that week.

Ruby, my first time on a boat on the Broads I was 21 years old with my GF who had never been on a boat, we had Calypso Queen out of King Line Horning for a week and did the Southern Broads and that was at the time when you still had to beware of Coasters on the Yare.

Yes, Ruby, I did it on my first time on the Broads.  As I said, there is plenty of daylight this time of year, so there's really no need to hurry  I just prefer travelling, (there's lots of time to look around one at 4mph)to sitting on crowded moorings. Of course, it all depends on the time of low water being suitable, but at this time of year it shouldn't be a problem, as it's light from 4am to around 9pm.  

(And mudweighting on Bargate, beats Salhouse broad hollow!)

Hi there....the upper ant between stalham and dilham (if you can get under wayford bridge) is also fairly quiet & peaceful and several places to wild moor against trees..id also try to get under wroxham bridge and spend time exploring that stretch and theres a lovely broad just past wroxham bridge.hope you have a lovely time.

Why oh why does everyone worry about mooring?? If you really want to moor in a pub carpark so be it, but the mudweight is for mooring too and people seem unable to throw the thing off the front!!

For what its worth I rarely if ever have a problem throwing a weight down - for example Sat night I was the only one on Black Horse and even if there is a breeze, there is always shelter available.

Mudweighting is always pretty safe so enjoy the Broads and overnight in places where you can share the beauty and not the diesel fumes!!

And the other real benefit is you are not hidebound nor need to travel in the busy times - you know you can always find a place and that means you can travel early evening, often when any breeze might have died down and at a time when the Broads are at their very best.

We are the habit of getting up really early,  mooring up for an early lunch about 11.30-12.00 then a siesta until about 4 after which we have a another +- two hour cruise before either mudwieghting or a wild mooring for the night.

We are travelling with 2 teenagers so early mornings tend not to happen, or maybe we can just set off whilst they still sleep. I think all we can do is set off and see where we get to.
I've promised the girls we will eat out every night so we will probably have to look at mooring early.
Has anyone got any tips on something to take that's been useful for them? Or even things not to bother taking?
Thanks for all the replays so far.

Hi again

If you only do one thing make sure on one morning you set off at about 5.30 or just as dawn is breaking.  .you will be the only ones on the water apart from the kingfishers and it a completely magical experience for all ages. ( including teenagers )

As long as none of you are vegetarians conincide the leaving with a bacon sandwich and a cup of steaming tea as you travel .. You will all remember the experience for the rest  of your lives.

Have fun

Graham
