 Notice to Mariners

Notice to Mariners received via the RHYC is too important for anyone enjoying a little early season sailing to wait for the next Suffolk Newsletter.

THE DEBEN ENTRANCE Summary of a discussion Suffolk Section member Bram van der Have had with John White, Harbour Master at Felixstowe Ferry, on 12 February 2017: “It is evident that significant change is taking place in the Deben Entrance over the winter 2016/17.  Since last Autumn the entrance buoys have been re-laid twice already but again last week at a very low tide the harbour master boat hit the bottom in the middle of the channel. Trinity House is due to carry out its usual survey with the aim that the assistant Felixstowe Ferry HM Stephen Reid can re-lay the Trinity House buoys by Easter. In the meantime, most likely in early March, John White will do his own survey and publish his usual chartlet on the Deben Entrance web site – see www.debenestuarypilot. The local fishermen have started to use an alternative entrance, which points more Easterly and is at the moment an easy straight passage .  It is the view of John White that following a few more weeks winter weather this will become the new official entrance and will subsequently be shown on the chartlets and be buoyed. In the meantime be careful NOT to use last years printed charts nor the electronic versions on Navionics etc. as most likely they will also be out of date. Should you wish to consult the Felixstowe Ferry HM before leaving or entering the river, do not hesitate to contact them.”  Contact phone numbers: John White 01394-270106, mob. 07803 476621 Stephen Read mob 07860 191768
