Navigating in restricted visibility

When navigating in restricted visibility, remember:

Keep a good look out by sight, hearing and all other available means.

Maintain continuous listening watch on the Harbour Working Channel 11.

Small craft may not be detected by radar due to their construction, size and the prevailing weather conditions. Additionally, small craft will not be detected when in close proximity to commercial ships due to the height of the ship's radar scanner.

  • RNLI Beach Lifeguards
