these notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. Prices have increased a little.
Safe harbour when the weather is thick or foul.

It was dark and the front of the boat getting hard to see, I've never see fog so thick. Even the supply vessels were getting edgy. Ok port control had me stand off to the south for an hour to wait my turn to be talked in. I didn't see the pier-heads until 50 metres off and then it cleared to 100 metres. Thank goodness for a chartplotter and AIS. I don't think it would have been possible without at least a plotter. The harbour master was brilliant and acted like air traffic control, managing a tough situation for twenty or so of rig vessels, fishing boats and the odd yacht too. The marina across the bay is a bit shallow at low water and it is best to stay towards the port side when you enter with anything other than shoal draft. Entering in an onshore breeze can be exciting until the pier-heads are traversed. There can be a fair popple on springs off the north head and plenty of backwash from the walls but the port, although busy, gives you plenty of time to sort yourself out but be prepared to be patient as commercial traffic takes priority.
