< Edit: Dates set for 8, 9, 10 July. JK >
Would anyone on here be interested in a nice cruise along the broads (sticking mostly to the speedlimit)
A good starting place is Burgh St Peter at Waveney River Centre
. Lovely place for a meal there is a shop and a slipway along with the pub and plenty of moorings and space to leave the trailer and vehicle for the day also fairly secure, There are Caravans here for hire and also Tents. I've spoke to them and there is the possibility of a discount.
Its halfway between Oulton broad (to sea) and Beccles (in land) and also easy to get to somerleyton.
There are ski lanes near by for water skiing. You would need a minimum of a 7 day licence to use your boat on the broads. for more details see Broads Authority
The Best time would be around July/August.
My self and Bogi B went along to visit today and found the place in chaos. Building work everywhere! New shiplift, and other associated buildings around the place. obviously to be finished before summer so its going to be better than I thought.
The slipway is concrete and goes to be about half a metre deep at low tide then drops off at the end and I couldnt see how deep. but shouldnt be much There is a fair sized marina with also river front moorings available fairly cheap for a night.
the plan is provisionally as follows (open to change):
Day 1: Cruise from Burgh st Peter to Somerleyton for a BBQ
Day 2: Cruise from Burgh st Peter to Oulton Broad, Then through the Lock to lake lothing into the north sea and onto Great yarmouth/Scroby sands to see the seals.
Day 3 (Sunday): Cruise to Oulton Broad to possibly meet with the South Broads Lifeboat.
