LNTM - 26/06/24

LOCAL NOTICE TO MARINERS No. 35(T) of 2024

North Solent Seagrass Bed Surveys

Notice is hereby given that the Environment Agency will be carrying out seagrass bed surveys in and around Cowes Harbour in early July.

The EA’s 8.5m survey vessel ‘Solway Shepherd’ (MMSI 235091049), will be operating in the area from 1 to 10 July and on the water from 0600hrs until 1800hrs. The outline plan will be for the vessel to survey in the Medina on the 1 & 2 July, North Cowes 3 & 4 July and Gurnard Bay 9 & 10 July, but this will be weather and tide dependant.

All vessels are required to keep well clear of the ‘Solway Shepherd’, as she will be restricted in her ability to manoeuvre whilst surveying. All mariners are requested to keep a good lookout and pass at slow speed. The vessel will be monitoring VHF Ch 69 for concerned traffic.

This local notice to mariners will self-cancel at 2359 on 12 July 2024.
