BY SEA - APPROACHING SOVEREIGN HARBOUR

  • From the East or South-East

Remain alert for the tide rips over the Royal Sovereign Shoal and the Horse of Willingdon, and the in-shore Coxheath Shoal.

  • From the West 

Clear the shore by a mile after rounding Beachy Head.

  • Harbour Approach

The Martello Tower at Langney Point now serves as a lighthouse to indicate the marina. Its xenon light (Fl.(3).15s12m7M) is visible by daylight.
A Safe Water Mark (LFl.10s) at the waypoint Lat 50' 47'.37N Long 000'20'.81E marks the start of the entrance channel.
Upon arrival at the Safe Water Mark contact us on VHF Ch 17.
To seaward of the breakwater entrance the channel is buoyed with two green starboard marks.These two green buoys (Fl.G.3s & Fl.G.5s) mark a World War One wreck, visible at LW Springs.
It is important to keep the white sector of the single point leading light (Dir.Fl.WRG5s4m1M) which leads in on 258' true (261' magnetic 2002).
If the leading light is red, turn to starboard to regain the white sector; if green, turn to port. Pass between the breakwaters marked with lights Fl(4)R12s3m6M (port-hand) and FlG5s3m6M (starboard-hand), coming off the leading line and heading towards the locks once you can clearly see the lock traffic signals.
Proceed through the buoyed channel and Outer Harbour (parts of which dry at low water), observing the speed limit of 5 knots.
Mariners are advised to monitor VHF Channel 17 for navigation information whilst underway within the harbour.
A 3 knot limit applies around the Waterfront and the North Channel.
