    Default Yarmouth buoys

    Anyone care to predict the availability of the buoys outside the harbour this weekend?? The finger pontoons are all booked. Wouldn't be able to make it until lunchtime on Sat...maybe stay for two nights. Boat is 10m

    I do always wondered what degree of no shows they have at Yarmouth for fingers as they always seem booked whenever I look. I have sat on buoy with promises of berth but it's a lottery .

    So long as there's a buoy to sit on I don't really mind.

    I would have thought both. There during Cowes week and we were happily accomodated. I suppose as usual the later you arrive the less the chance.

    I think they only book a dozen or so berths in advance. We've only been turned away once, Fastnet start day and we arrived about 3pm, way too late. Noon would have been fine. The present Mrs Scala didn't fancy the only remaining buoy, everywhere else full so we decided to return to Swanwick.

    We were there this weekend, I said to the Scots guy in the RIB we'd like a berth for the night, he said if I gave him the lottery numbers he would sort it. When I said see me a nine tonight he sort out a place for us, rafted to another boat. All fine with us. Some time ago I said to one of the guys that Yarmouth was the only place I knew with a Harbour full sign. He told me that was gone and they would always find a space if you turned up.
