Conwy Notice to Mariners – COVID-19

Please be advised that harbour staff are carrying out twice weekly checks of all vessels moored, berthed, beached and laid-up ashore at Conwy Harbour.  In the event of finding frayed mooring strops or mooring lines, harbour staff will replace lines with ‘sea steel’ line free of charge and notify owners directly.  If owners have spare lines on board these will be deployed after discussion.

If a vessel appears that its bilges requiring pumping out, staff will contact owners for permission to gain entry to pump the bilges using our pumps. Our emergency response protocols remain in place i.e. we will act immediately if a vessel is in imminent danger.

The harbour is staffed Monday to Friday, although the office is closed to the public and therefore the office phone will only be answered if staff are in attendance inside the office.  The Duty Harbour Master can be reached on 07733012568.  We ask that the number is only called outside of normal working hours in an emergency please.  All staff are responding to email requests as normal and this is the best method to raise any queries or concerns.

Essential maintenance continues, such as dredging and servicing of moorings.  The harbour will remain fully operational and ready for use as soon as the restrictions on movement are lifted.  We look forward to welcoming everyone back.

Best regards
