Navigation Hints See Admiralty Chart 2611 or Imray Chart Y23 The approach to Poole • If approaching from the Solent, the entrance is identifiable from the high cliffs of Anvil Point. When nearer, the rocks of Old Harry (Handfast Point) are clearly visible. The Swash Channel is clearly marked. • When leaving for, or approaching from the west, beware of the race off Handfast Point on the ebb tide. • The Harbour is accessible at all states of the tide and is only dangerous in very strong S and SE winds, particularly on the ebb tide. • The entrance channel ‘The Swash’ passes between the Training Bank, on the western side, and Hook Sands to the east. Be careful of the Chain Ferry, just at the entrance, as the ebb can run at 3 to 4 knots. Navigational Safety Guidance • Avoid sailing in the main navigational channels where possible, especially in poor visibility. Be aware of the effect of passing close to a large vessel. The ship’s hydro-dynamic displacement can pull the water from under you without notice. • Give right of way to large vessels which are limited in their manoeuvring space. Remember they may have less room than is immediately apparent. • If you have to proceed within the channel keep to the starboard (right hand) side. • Be Alert ~ keep a sharp look out for vessels surveying, dredging and laying buoys or moorings. Look around you ~ especially astern. • Watch your wash ~ even when you are proceeding within the speed limit, you may be creating a wash. Slow down whenever you see other vessel activity which could be affected, for example craft embarking passengers or youngsters in canoes. • The International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea apply to all vessels ~ including those racing. • Take particular care with boats under sail, especially when they are racing. • Be visible and make your intentions clear. You may think you know what you are doing and where you are going, but put yourself in the shoes of the Master of the cross-channel ferry ~ does he know your intentions? • You may see a large ship at all times, but if you disappear from the view of the Master of a ship you are too close, • Do not underestimate the speed of other ships. If your boat is slow you might not be able to take effective action to keep clear if you find yourself on a collision course. If in doubt, take avoiding action and take it early. • Do not anchor or drift in any navigational channel or create an obstruction within the channels. • Do not secure to, or obscure any navigational marks, buoy, beacon or stake. • Mariners are advised that large inbound vessels will tend to be on the port hand side of the channel between the Harbour Entrance and North Haven Point to avoid Chapmans Peak. 8

Harbour Control Poole Harbour Control is a 24/7 all year round vessel monitoring centre providing essential information to commercial and leisure marine traffic. It is the first point of contact for all craft especially in the event of an incident or accident. The Harbour Control Officer (HCO) has a number of resources available to keep watch on various activities, day and night, including Radar, CCTV, AIS, and the latest in 3D vessel monitoring equipment. The HCO is also assisted by a number of patrol vessels and organisations around the harbour as well as the harbour user. All monitoring equipment is recordable including voice communications for safety and training purposes and to assist in incident investigation. The Harbour Control Officer should be contacted in the event of any emergency in the harbour using: VHF Channel 14 (or 16) Call sign: “Poole Harbour Control” Telephone: 01202 440230 Fax: 01202 674801 Email: harbourcontrol@phc.co.uk Use of VHF Radio If you have a marine radio on your boat, maintain a listening watch on Channel 16 outside the harbour area but remember this is a calling and distress frequency. It is not a conversational channel and except in an emergency, you must switch to another channel when contact has been made. In the Swash Channel and inside the harbour it is advisable to maintain a listening watch on Channel 14 which is the harbour operations channel. You should not communicate on this channel unless it is necessary for safety reasons, but you will be able to follow and anticipate the movements of other shipping. All harbour patrol launches, Harbour Control, Sandbanks Chain Ferry and the Dorset Marine Police keep watch on Channel 14. “Poole Bridge” VHF Channel 12 PLEASE NOTE Radar, CCTV, VHF communications and telephone conversations to Harbour Control are recorded for safety and training purposes ! If there’s an accident If you are involved in a marine incident or accident, no matter how minor, within Poole Harbour and its approach channels, you must report the fact to the Harbour Authority as soon as possible. Standard report forms are available in the Harbour Office but an initial report should be made to Poole Harbour Control or to the Harbour Master’s patrol launch, call sign ‘VIGILANT’ on VHF Channel 14 or 16 Report forms are available to download from the PHC website: www.phc.co.uk 9
