Seems to me that to be clear of the moorings you'd either have to go the other side of Black Rock (being careful not to go over it!) or far enough out that you're almost in the main channel. I've heard the other side of the pier suggested, but there's private or club moorings there too.

    Also worth noting that the Harbourmaster claims the right to charge anchoring dues in a remarkably large area off the entrance, though I don't know what their current practice is.

    I used to go between the wall and the first row of trots, but I must admit, I haven't been there for a few years as I don't particularly like Yarmouth.

    Could always go on the wall? Stays afloat there...

    That's good to know

    Yes the website says that all the finger pontoon berths are booked and the remaining 200 spaces are first come first served. 200 !

    Dropping the hook is always an option I suppose.

    Always worth a call to either River Yar or Harold Hayles boatyards in Yarmouth when looking for a mooring.

    Their finger pontoons are dire - not the pontoons themselves but the current whipping through them, it goes diagonally and ebb and flood are not opposite directions but at 90 degrees to each other. Where the bit of breakwater finishes it is particularly vicious; I'd rather raft up any day.
