I reviewed these notes in September 2022. I've uploaded a new Approach Chartlet but it is only advisory so best contact the HM before approaching the bar. There is still a problem with silting here

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. Nothing changes but we are trying to get hold of a more recent chart of the entrance channel and buoyage.

The error re the HW was corrected. We have added a sketch chart of new buoyage in the Approach and highlighted the change in the Approach sections of these notes.
