  1. Heading South from Potter Heigham, the first turning to starboard is Womack Water where you might be lucky enough to get a mooring, then it's a short walk to the pub in Ludham Village, if moorings full then back out onto river and go to Thurne Dyke as others have suggested, plenty of moorings there.

  2. Phone reception is bliss on the North Broads.My wife and I are moored at Horning and are on the EE network. Very poor reception, usually nothing at all and similar throughout the region. Ban any more transmitter aerials, we go on board our boat to get away from it all. Don't call us. We'll call you !!! Ha Ha Paul and Sharon 'Bon Bon'
  3. Sorry, but I can't agree that vessel A is the stand on vessel. Vessel A is leaving the River Bure and turning to port into the Thurne. You should never cross the bow of another vessel, when not safe to do so. Neither is B the stand on vessel, as Coll Reg 15 says the vessel that has the other on her Starboard side, shall keep clear. Obviously the best course of action is for A to slow down and let B pass clear ahead. Under no circumstances where collision is possible. should you ever turn to port as one post suggests, this is strictly against the Coll. Regs. and whilst hirers may not know them, insurance companies do. If vessel A did turn to port and the other vessel knew the Regs, and turned to Starboard, a collision would still result. When a collision is possible a vessel or both vessels must turn to starboard as required by the Coll Regs (Red to Red and it's safe ahead), then alter to the desired course once safe to do so. The International Rules for Preventing Collisions at Sea, apply to Rivers and Harbours as well a the sea, unless altered for local waters by Governments, again as stated in the Coll Regs. Having said all that, if I were vessel A, I would just slow down and let vessel B pass safely head. Happy Boating Paul
