Our location is:

Lat (WGS84) N50:15:02 ( 50.250569 )
Long (WGS84) W3:46:13 ( -3.770307 )

Relevant Admiralty Charts: Nos. 28, 1634, 1613, Stanford 13, Imray C6 Y48, OS 202

For entrance to the port, visiting yachts are expected to obtain navigational information from official publications e.g. Admiralty Pilot and Charts, Shell Pilot and/or one of the many yachtsmen's pilots available, together with a reputable Nautical Almanac.

The Harbour lies between Bolt Head to the west and Prawle Point to the east. Salcombe's Bar, made famous by Tennyson's "Crossing of the Bar", stretches south westerly across the entrance from Limebury Point on the east side. This sand bar has a least depth of 0.7 metres LAT and should not be negoitated on an ebb tide with strong onshore winds or swell. The entrance leading line (000oT) is marked by a red and white striped pole with red topmark on the Poundstone Rock, with a second beacon behind it on Sandhill Point, which is white with a horizontally striped red and white diamond topmark. The rear beacon displays a Directional Flashing lignt WRG 2sec., of which the white sector 357o - 002oT shows the leading line. Once Blackstone Rock is abeam to starboard, the main fairway course of 042o T can be set, again marked by leading lights near to Scoble Point. It is important to note that Blackstone Rock now displays Group Flashing 2 Green (8 seconds) and Wolf Rock Buoy displays Quick Flashing Green (3 seconds).
