Update April 2022
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 28th Apr 2022
I reviewed these notes at the end of April 2022. There are no changes to the basic layout of the moorings but please do note that there is nowhere to anchor inside the river - you have to pick up a mooring or go alongside a pontoon.

I've updated to the 2017 prices and hope to get a further update later on. Otherwise no changes
Update Spring 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 13th May 2016
These notes were reviewed by Don in May 2016. They seem to have altered their charging system which has resulted in a reduction for some boats. There is a good chartlet of the river from the Bar inwards and we have included a link to that.
Update March 2014
Written by dononshytalk | 25th Mar 2014
Notes reviewed March 2014. The River Yealm Harbour authority has frozen its prices for the 2014 season.

Written by dononshytalk | 12th Feb 2013
The notes for the Yealm River were updated by Don T on the 12th February 2013. There are no changes to the previous notes apart from the harbour dues.
