UPDATE SPRING 2018
Written by Don Thomson | 28th Mar 2018
Despite the 2018 chart, the depth in the entrance is still dredged to 1.9 metres. Prices at the Lady Bee have gone up
Correction to Lat/Long of "Safe Offing" waypoint.
Written by George Metcalfe | 6th Sep 2017
Under the "Waypoint" heading near the top, the Safe Offing waypoint Northing is incorrect. It says 50:49.894 N but it should be 50:47.894 N. It is specified correctly further down, under the "Approach" heading.

Editors note: Thanks for that, now corrected
Update Spring 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 16th Mar 2016
These notes were reviewed again by Don in March 2016. Prices still haven't changed and everything else remains the same.
Update April 2014
Written by dononshytalk | 11th Apr 2014
These notes were reviewed in April 2014. Prices haven't changed and Shoreham is becoming a harbour that is attracting more yachties.
Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 18th Mar 2013
These notes were updated by Don T on the 18th March 2013. Prices have been adjusted for 2013 otherwise there is little change. The Sussex Yacht Club website URL has been included.
National Coastwatch Institution
Written by SailorAlan | 18th Oct 2010
May I suggest that you might like to add to the charts or notes the positions and watch hours of the National Coastwatch Institution Watch Stations.

I am one of the volunteer watchkeepers at Shoreham [I was for about 15 years a Skipper in the Admiralty Ferry Crews] and we keep a daylight visual and radio listening watch.

The web site is http://www.nci.org.uk from which you can get full information about us and what we do.
