Early for next week but I shall be away


1. Couple of reduced depths to the est of the Thames Barrier. Not particular critical to leisure craft;
2. A repeat of a foul in the Esthinder anchorage - should not affect us;
3. Establishment of a previous temporary notice regarding new buoyage in the Approaches to Westerschelde - Geul van de Walvischstaart channel. This includes a change in the type of port hand buoys. The starboard hand 'buoys' are virtual aids to navigation and therefore only visible on AIS - or a chart with them marked thereon!


1. Notice from Trinity House that they are substituting the Sunk Light float with a temporary one. Details of AIS squawks, lights, fog signal in the notice on the Temporary page;
2. Dong have a jack-up barge working on a turbine in the Gunfleet Wind Farm;
3. Notice that the Kirkly sector light at Lowestoft is unlit;
4. Notice regarding substantial works on the beach south of Lowestoft - rocks and working vessels and things taking place.

That's it for next week. Nothing in the following week as I shall be away but hopefully normal service will be restored on 20th July.
