St Quay – Sailing Directions

Precautions / Regulations / Facilities.

Maintain Listening Watch within Approaches and Harbour on:

Harbourmaster / Port d’Amour (Marina) Ch.09.

Navigation: See “Depths” & “Winds” for approach precautions. Take care to avoid Vedettes & Fishing vessels as they have priority over leisure vessels (Or at least they think they do!).

Depths: The port is accessible (from the North) at all states of tide but has shallows just East of Marina Breakwater. If approaching in rough or low water hold a course closer to Marina Breakwater in order to avoid shallows. Use a large scale navigation chart.

Tidal Streams: Due care should be exercised during flood / ebbing tides as approaches can have tidal streams running at up to 2 Knots.

Winds: Wind does not normally present a problem to access marina in calm conditions but care should be exercised when approaching near low water or strong easterly winds.

Speed Limits: Harbour 5 knots.

Marina entrance: Access is possible at all states of tide although at low water or easterly winds special precautions are necessary. See: “Depths” & “Winds”.

Marina: Port d’Amour (Marina). Allocated marina visitor berths (Call before making passage to ensure berth in high season). Visitor pontoon is Number 7 midway along port side of marina. See: “Links” to download a Marina plan.

Fuel: Fuel pontoon with both Diesel and Petrol (credit card payment only).
