General Information

The recommended time to arrive at Yarmouth.

Another benefit of passing through Yarmouth at low water slack is the following tide will be incoming making your onward journey both North and South with the current. This means less strain on the engine with lower rev's required resulting in quieter cruising and a considerable saving on journey time and fuel.

In the terms and conditions of hire, a few Boating Holiday Companies may request that passage through Yarmouth is only undertaken at low water slack.

There is also a high water slack but it is likely that the clearance under the two Yarmouth bridges will be insufficient. Even if this was not the case it wouldn’t be ideal as you would be travelling against the current for the duration of your onward journey. In addition should craft crossing Breydon Water from the Southern Broads find the Yarmouth bridges clearance insufficient the boat would have to be turned around for a return journey back across Breydon Water. This is extremely important should it be anywhere nearing sunset. Cruising in the dark is not permitted. Holiday cruisers have no navigation lights and Breydon Water really is the last place on The Broads that you want to be in the dark.
