Hi, not posted before, but been enjoying reading lots of posts. We have a boat booked for end of Sept and want to go down to Beccles.  Using the Norfolk Broads Hire tide tables, have I worked out the start of my crossing time correctly?
Boat Brinks Sonnet. Height 6’ 7”
Low tide 05:58
Slack.  06:58

Passing through / leaving YS.   Approx 07:30 ?

I cannot see any crossing time for early morning at the end of September. What date are you intending to cross.

In a nutshell
The Moore the merrier.

Sunday 4 October has a 5.58 Low tide, so could it be that:

A) the OP picks up his boat at the very end of September (e.g. Weds 30th) and has a 7 day hire, in which case he really needs to check times for his return !
Or
B) has misread the dates/columns ?

If you download the Aweigh app (it’s free) you will be able to check low water times a week in advance , you’re fine to cross over Breydon (weather permitting) outside of slack water time but will consume more fuel if punching the tide , to check as to bridge clearance ring the yacht station at Yarmouth to confirm  ?01493 842794?

Why not use the tide tables on this site? I find them more accurate than the Aweigh site!

Have to agree with MM, you can check the tides up to 60 days ahead too.

My mistake, it's the same tide table as the link below.  Sunday 4th is the day, we pick up for 2 weeks (29th Sept), 1st week to explore the north then second to revisit some places we saw last year on our fist broads visit.

Just a bit unsure as I have come across a few who say cross 1 to 2 hours after slack time?

Where do you intend to start from on that morning?
Stracey to Yarmouth is around 1.1/4 hrs which means an
early start and you do have to remember that it is likely
to still be dark-ish. You cannot navigate a hire boat
between sunset and sunrise(to keep it simple)so journey
time is important to calculate too. Any further upstream
from Stracey means an even earlier start! We always aim
for 1hr after slack and your boat height shouldn't be a
problem with the bridges.

As said above the tide tables on this site are as good as they get for passing Great Yarmouth Bridges - The water is usually low enough for passing for some time before & after low tide the difference becomes more more critical if you want to avoid fighting the tidal flow heading to Yarmouth in both directions you use much less fuel using the tides to your advantage. Talking to the BA Rangers at GY the day before is the best bet as they will know the tidal trends and know what every boat is capable of.
