Winter Sill Gate Operations at Conwy Marina

Conwy Marina has started it’s restricted programme of Winter sill gate operation:

Berth holders are advised that, with immediate affect, sill gate operations will not take place during the hours of darkness and during any severe inclement weather.

Vessels wishing to access or egress the marina during this time are asked where possible, to navigate close to high water with the gate in a raised position and to contact the Marina for depth clearances.

Vessels wishing to access or egress outside of these hours are asked to request a gate operation giving as much notice as possible.

Reducing sill gate operations during the quieter winter months has proven to help significantly reduce the levels of siltation in the marina during these peak months and we thank you for your continued co-operation.
