Navigation Warning

NAVIGATION WARNING

Blakeney Harbour Entrance

 

The entrance channel to Blakeney Harbour, in the vicinity of the HJORDIS wreck, is changing rapidly. Currently the primary channel remains as buoyed, but the entrance channel between the Bar and Harbour Entrance buoy number 3 is becoming very narrow and can be extremely hazardous in times of moderate to heavy swell.

 

Those Mariners familiar with Blakeney Harbour Entrance may now prefer to enter and leave the harbour using the new channel (currently not buoyed) which is opening up from Harbour Entrance buoy number 3  heading out WNW, running South and West of the HJORDIS wreck. Great care and local knowledge is required to safely navigate this channel, ensuring a route is taken where the swell isn’t breaking.

 

We are monitoring this situation closely, and suggest that for the time being Mariners entering the harbour for the first time should first obtain up to date pilotage information by phoning CHARLIE WARD on 01263-740377 or 07771597985.
