Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 16th Apr 2019
These notes were reviewed again in April 2019. The prices have changed. Watch out for additional buoyage offshore in connection with the surveys for wind farms.

These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2017. Nothing has changed here except for the dismantling of the wind turbines mentioned below. The Yacht Club is holding its prices for yet another year.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 9th Mar 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. Over the last few years there have been changes to the buoyage in the approaches to Blythe and the visual aspect of Blyth has been altered by the removal of the wind turbines on the East Pier. It is also worth noting that the aluminium smelter has closed down so there is less activity at the pier opposite the South Dock. These changes have been reflected in the text
Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 9th Apr 2013
