Cowes Harbour Notices to Mariners

As well as recreational craft, there are a large number of commercial movements, with high-speed ferries, vehicle ferries, and commercial shipping up to 100m in length moving in and out of the harbour and river. In this busy marine environment it is essential for everyone's safety and enjoyment that all water users understand how to navigate safely in a crowded river and harbour, and know the local regulations. We have highlighted a number of Local Notices to Mariners (LNTM) with which you should familiarise yourself before entering the harbour, and in addition you should review the comprehensive list of all active Local Notices to Mariners given in LNTM No. 01 of 2016.
