Thanks for the heads up Perry but this is usual at Southwold and we always check the approach advice with the harbour master or on www.eastcoastrivers.com.

Although I am sure it is more critical to the rag danglers.

Prudent approach Jonathan.

The Deben Entrance has evidently had huge changes over the winter with no current knowledge of a charted route in, although a member of our yacht club is trying to deliver a yacht to Woodbridge on Friday so we may have some local knowledge.

Even given the Deben situation this it is not subject to an MCA Nav Warning as Southwold is so drew the conclusion it may be a situation other than the norm.
