Hi everyone, this is my first post although I've been following discussions since I bough my first boat back in September.
I was looking at going to Rockland St Mary and wondered if the Dyke that leads off the Yare has free moorings in case the staithe is full when I go. Thank you for any advice.

That dyke is very narrow and not a good idea to moor up there although I believe there are some moorings, not official, at the mouth of the dyke. However, during the fishing season they are often frequented by fishermen who often stay all night. They can get a bit ratty about having a boat moored on "their" pitch.

Your best bet is if the moorings are full up is to chug up the river to the Surlingham Ferry, there are usually some spare moorings there and there is good food, good beer and a friendly welcome awaiting you there.

Are you talking about long dyke off the Yare Potter? It does not appear that narrow and I regularly see boats moored at either end.
The dyke up to the staithe itself is much narrower and has boats moored for its length, some on both sides. Lovely place to moor though.

The long dyke from the river to the broad you can moor on although there are no posts or rings , there was a while ago no mooring signs on that stretch but they seam to have gone now .
Now as you travel down the dyke off the broad nowadays its much better no more boats on both sides the only ones left are 8or 9 between the house and the basin on that side , worth also mentioning that since BA dredged that entire stretch and the basin they also cut it back a fair bit and its much easier to pass vessels now .
