Broads boaters asked to double moor
By: Broads Authority
BOATERS are being asked to moor side by side at certain Broads Authority moorings to meet the demand for mooring space.
Responding to feedback from boat hirers that they sometimes have trouble finding moorings the Authority has identified 20 locations in the northern and southern Broads which are suited to double mooring.
Five free 24 hour moorings are being trialled in the northern Broads, and 15 in the southern Broads. They include Great Yarmouth Yacht Station, Norwich Yacht Station and Reedham Quay.
The moorings have been selected by taking into account the river width and strength of tides and new signs have been put up to encourage boaters to welcome others alongside.
The trial follows the Environment Agency’s successful campaign on the River Thames to encourage boaters to moor alongside others.
