Sailing Notes (for info only – skippers should make own passage plans and decisions to sail) 25/05/19 Hythe SC HW, 17:03 BST, 3.91m 2m (dinghy depth on the pontoon) from around 12:15.  Solitaire/KG aiming to leave around 1pm. Distance to Island Harbour from Hythe SC is around 10.5m, so expect around 3hrs of sailing/motoring.  Arriving towards high tide will make motoring in the river easier. Island Harbour has a lock to maintain depth in the Marina at low tide call in to the Marina VHF or 01983 539 994 as you approach to get permission to enter the lock or hold outside on the pontoon.
The marina will likely be busy on the bank holiday and if the lock is not on free-flow then they may operate a booking system for departures.  If you have not booked a lock-out then you may have a long wait.  It is therefore recommended that when you arrive you book a lock-out departure time on Sunday or Monday.
Communication on the water: VHF Ch. 77
