Depth in the approach 2017
Written by Don Thomson | 11th Jun 2017
We have had another report of less than CD depth in the approach channel - from a yachtsman who had been told by the harbour that there would be sufficient. He was aground in the middle of the channel for four hours. Do not be mislead by the Navionics white "dredged Channel" indication on their chart. To be absolutely sure of the depth in the approach you might follow the advice given in 2016 and assume that the channel may only be CD + 0.8m
UP DATE MARCH 2017
Written by Don Thomson | 30th Mar 2017
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2017. We queried the depth in the approach channel (raised by Nick Kelly below) and the marina said it was probably high pressure at the time. I've added a warning to the main text re depth. I've added a larger scale chart to show the Tees approach Buoy which has replaced the Tees Fairway Buoy. Prices are being held for another year.

Far less depth than described in approach channel.
Written by Nick Kelly | 1st May 2016
There is now far less depth than advertised in the approach channel. It is certainly not dredged to CD. I would estimate it is currently sitting at CD + 0.8m. This makes access for yachts [even a lift keel like ours more like H+or - 3, nothing like the H+or_5 that the pilot and the marina publish.
Tees Fairway Bouy

Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 10th Mar 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. The speed limit is 4knots in the Marina. Prices have gone down!! They may go up a wee bit in April 2015 but we'll check on that.
Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 9th Apr 2013
These notes were reviewed by Don T on the 9th April 2013. No changes were necessary other than to update the tariffs for 2013. Rumours of a marina development in the Middlesbrough Middlehaven Docks have come to nought
Best pub in Hartlepool
Written by Captain Pete | 9th Sep 2010
The Real Ale Aficionado MUST visit the “Rat Race, a tiny pub without a bar on Hartlepool station. It used to be an old waiting room and Pete runs it as a permanent beer festival. You knock on the door of a large cupboard and Pete comes and serves you wonderful ale. Absolutely No lager. Beers available are chalked on the wall with a list of those settling. It was always busy when we were there 10th & 11th August 2010 and everyone talked to everyone, a good place.
