Vessels entering Blakeney Harbour should be aware that there is an East/West sand spit rapidly building between Harbour Entrance Starboard Buoy No. 1 (N 52° 58.897’ E 000° 58.280’ QG) and Harbour Entrance Starboard Buoy No. 2 (N 52°58.867’ E 000° 58.025’ Fl(2)G8s) Vessels entering the harbour should proceed with great caution between these two buoys, heading SE after passing buoy no. 1 before turning SW towards buoy no. 2, in order to avoid shallow breaking water over the new spit.
We are anticipating major changes to the harbour entrance channel over the coming few months which we will be closely monitoring. Buoys will be moved to reflect these changes, and confirmed by further Notices to Mariners.
