I've reviewed these notes and the only changes are to the tariffs in some of the facilities whilst Falmouth Marina is maintaining it's prices.

The notes have been edited to take account of the newish name of Falmouth Haven (the erstwhile Visitors Yacht Haven)

Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 27th Jan 2013
The Falmouth 1 notes were updated by Don T on 27th January 2013. There are no major changes to the facilities here apart from the prices which have been updated to cover the 2013 summer. I have discovered that the projected new marina in the docks area has been scrapped (this may be old news to some of you). This was on the drawing board as far back as 2007 along with plans for deeper dredging in the main channel; when the cancellation of the marina occured is unclear, but it has and there are no plans to resurrect it.

26-27/8 – Falmouth – Falmouth has a great premier marina that is out the way of the busy harbour, there is plenty of traffic and navigational dangers within the harbour as well as large navy ships and RFA ships that patrol, The premier marina was very friendly and was the home of huge super yachts, the staff are very friendly and the range of shore facilities are 10/10.
Buoyage change in entrance

The aptly named " Black Rock" covers at half tide and has a black conical beacon topped by an isolated danger mark (2 Black Balls, vertically), and is lit Fl (2) 10s 3M. The main channel for shipping lies to the east of this danger, and it is further marked by an easterly cardinal " Black Rock", ( Q(3) 10s )

Above mentioned E.Cardinal Buoy "Black Rock", has now been replaced with a Red Can buoy (Fl.R.2.5s)

New chart and text being uploaded soon.
