New North Deep Buoy Positions

We have had the following email form the Harbour Master regarding the new position of the buoys for the North Deeps new route.

We have now moved the North Deep marks to the co-ordinates listed below to mark the new channel. We have also rigged two ‘race marks’ with yellow beach marker buoys:

NDI 53 18′.370 N 03 50′.920 W
NDM 53 18′.662 N 03 51′.659 W
NDO 53 18′.864 N 03 52′.208 W

Race marks

53 19′.180 N 03 55′.845 W
53 18′.626 N 03 53′.012 W

We will issue a local notice to mariners.

I would be grateful for any feedback on the positioning of the marks.

Many thanks
Matt

This is not official yet and should be used with caution as the North Deep was used. Initial feedback indicates that there is more water in this channel than the old North Deep. If you could feedback any of your own comments to me I will summarise them as a club and pass them on to the harbour master.
