General Description

"We have waded in mire for five terrible weeks; there was no lack of mud where we were, in the middle of Grimsby. But now away we let our ship resound meerily on the waves over the sea to Bergen."

This was written in verse by the Viking Rognvald Kali.

Navigation and the TSS in the region of Spurn Head
Written by dononshytalk | 11th Mar 2015
We have altered the Approach notes in regard to crossing the Humber TSS from North to South with reference to the ABP Humber preferred routes; we have kept the option of crossing inside Spurn Head.

Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 10th Mar 2015
These notes were updated by Don in March 2015. They are not changing their visitors fees for 2015. I've changed the call sign for the VHF as suggested by "mudlark"
Call sign for lock
Written by grimsbysailors | 8th Jan 2014
The call sign for the lock is actually Fish Dock Island & you might be ignored if you use Fish Docks as in script.

Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 9th Apr 2013
These notes were reviewed by Don T on the 9th April 2013. The prices for visiting boats for the summer of 2013 have been held to the 2011 rates. I have changed the tidal reference to Immingham as that is the local primary port and a link to those tide tables has been included in the "Tides" section

11-14/7 – Grimsby – Grimsby used to be the biggest fishing port in the world, however as the industry declined so has the port and the surrounding area. The Grimsby yacht club has a nice marina an hour down the Humber, on approach there is LOTS of shipping and it is wise to radio the pilot and see what the traffic is doing. The surrounding area has a large Asda for restocking but the town is fairly derelict and run down. The people who run the marina are very nice and there’s a great time to be had in the clubhouse.

The berthing fee at HCA for year 2011 is £2 per metre, rates decrease for longer stay, berthmasters John or Ben are available 7 days a week 0800/1600, visitor pontoons have electric and water, fuel is available along with lifting facilities, laundry and high water at Hull is +30, the £10 penn fee outside the hw+-2hrs is now per vessel. The old Dock Tower is a great landmark to find the lock.
