Bathymetric Survey of Chichester Bar Completed (UK)
The Harbour Master at Chichester Harbour in the UK has issued the folowing Notice to Mariners.
“Mariners are advised that a bathymetric survey of Chichester Bar and Approach Channel undertaken 6 November 2012 showed a least depth of 1.1m below Chart Datum.
“Mariners are reminded of our standing advice that Chichester Bar is periodically dredged to 1.5m below Chart Datum.
“However through gradual accretion and after severe gales the depth can vary markedly and it is then prudent to assume a least depth of 0.8m below Chart Datum.”
