These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. Some prices have gone up and we have been warned that the pontoon below the bridge might charge craft waiting for the bridge opening
Outer harbour anchorages.
Written by Barbados Billy | 25th Jun 2014
I have used both the north and south anchorages in the outer section of the harbour. I always use a tripping line just in case. Both sides are subject to swell and wash but I found it tolerable. Tuck up in the marina round the corner if it's too bad. These anchorages are ideal for waiting out a foul tide or getting a bit of rest. I spent a day or so up the river finding out where all the old shipyards used to be and visiting the bridges in Newcastle. The Tyne has more than you might think so stay awhile and have a look even if it's a trip up the river and back on the tide.
Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 11th Apr 2013
The Newcastle notes were updated on the 11th April 2013. The big addition here is the Newcastle City Marina and we have included new notes for that. Prices are not too bad and have been updated throughout to cover the 2013 season.
