Notices to Mariners Week 48 – Notices to Mariners for the Southern East Coast of the UK and across to France, Belgium and part of Holland
1. ENGLAND - East Coast - River Thames - Ware Point - Wreck. Buoy. - Dangerous wreck on the edge of the 5m contour of the River Thames, east side opposite Ware Point (below Margaret Ness) - with commensurate west cardinal buoy - see image on the usual web page: http://www.crossingthethamesestuary.com/page9.html
2. ENGLAND - East Coast - Winterton-on-Sea to Great Yarmouth - Depths. Obstructions. - ugh - twelve reduced depths between Winterton and Great Yarmouth in and around the in-shore channels. Three images!
3. ENGLAND - East Coast - River Thames - Ovens Flat - Depths. - one reduced depth close to the Ovens SHB but at 8.9m, hardly likely to trouble us;
1. Harwich Seasonal buoyage - Harwich Shelf removed for the winter;
2. Port of Wells - Dredging;
3. Blakeney Harbour - the Hjordis East buoy is off station - recommended to leave the Hjordis isolated danger beacon at least 200 metres to starboard and pass the No 1 Harbour entrance buoy close to starboard;
4. And then with an ironic smile - Ramsgate Harbour reporting that several small craft have struck the green entrance buoy at low water - could please not hit the buoy anymore - the use of the recommended route is... recommended.
