Three reductions of depth on the eastern edge of the Whitaker Spit and four around the ‘finger’ extending north-east from the East Barrow Sand.  Cutting across Whitaker Spit to and from the Middle Deep perhaps needs a little more care.  These changes were prompted by a Port of London Authority survey earlier this year commissioned by the Crouch Harbour Authority.   It seems to me the PLA survey on the north-east corner of the East Barrow Sands was deliberately to help leisure users who like to 'cut the corner' round the edge of the sands dropping down to the SW Sunk.

A ‘Less water reported (2021)’ notice for the Ray Sand following the local NtM from the Crouch Harbour Authority last week.  The notice is more about correcting the chart than changes this year.  As I reported last year, the worst water was in line with the Ray Sand buoys and best water is about on a north – south line between 000°59’600E and 001°00’00E.  This year’s survey in September confirmed that idea (see at the Download page).

New warning of obstructions off Mersea Island.  This is an area direct in line with the Quarters and is often sailed.  Note that in week 27 of 2019 an oyster laying further closer to the shore was established and was and is clearly marked.  At present I do not know if this ‘warning’ is just associated with the marked area or whether new obstructions have been found.

The creation of two Oyster Spat Trays in Brightlingsea were notified in Week 29 and was included in the Temporary List in Week 29.  UKHO are now adding this Temporary list.  I cannot make sense for the first position as this marks the ‘buoy’ (a huge exaggeration of a description) close to but ‘outside’ the Tide Gauge at Brightlingsea and just in the channel.  However, having actually seen the ‘buoy’, it is ‘out of the way’ in both the sense that it is Brightlingsea side of the Gauge and outside of the entrance channel.


I could make no sense of the positions quoted in the Temporary notice so probably UKHO have been supplied with slightly incorrect lat/long.

Five unmarked seabed and six marked measuring instruments in and around the Blackwater.  This is in connection with the research for the new Nuclear Power Station.  I would suggest any user of the Blackwater should take note or the unmarked seabed instruments.  Tacking across the Blackwater mid-tide is running the risk of hitting one such instrument, another when going through Thirstlet Creek and the stumble.  The three on Dengie are, perhaps, safely closer to the shore for people using the Ray Sand (the 1 degree meridian is the best option).  But don’t tack down towards the edge of Sales Point (but there has also been warning of an obstn off Sales Point).

This is correcting the chart position of the Ray Sand Middle at the Ray Sand.  The buoy has never been moved (apart when it goes walkies) but the annotation had never caught up with the ‘official’ position.  Now I may be a little mystified and may have confused myself!  When I did three surveys in July last year (2019), the position of the Ray Sand Middle was (in my view) 51° 40´·00N., 0° 59´·50E.  But when the Crouch Harbour Authority reported that the Middle SWM went off station on October they quoted the position FROM which it moved as 51° 40´·00N., 0° 59´·00E – which in my view where it had been.  I guess an early trip in May?  The relevance I would suggest is that the 0° 59´·00E meridian has the highest drying height on the Ray Sand just south of the now quoted position.  See my download page for the latest chartlet.

This is a late ‘catch-up’ on the buoyage changes in the Whitaker and Swallowtail channels from July, 2011.  (yes, I did mean July, 2011).  Chart 1183 is not one probably used by Leisure Craft being the whole Thames Estuary and it deals with the changes by deletion of the old marks and insertion of a legend saying the channel is ‘buoyed’.


I am aware that the Imray chart (2000.8, included in Imray/Meridian ID10) was correctly printed and republished in August, 2011 – DO NOT TRY TO APPLY THIS CORRECTION TO THAT CHART – although it would apply to earlier versions.


The UKHO Leisure Folio 5607.3 was republished in December, 2011 (9th Edition) and similarly will not need emendation although the 8th Edition will.


CTTE ‘diagram’ of the revised buoyage is available below.
