This Notice follows on the Notice 766 from last week about a number of revised depths over wrecks and Obstn in Belgium waters.  This notice repeats 6 revised depths over wrecks dealt with last week to include SNC 1630.  That leaves us with one revised depth at the east edge of the Westhinder Ships anchorage which has over 19m, a revised depth  of 15.8  over a wreck well osshore off Oostende and a revised depth over an ‘obstn’ of 2.3m which is 4nm north of Zeebrugge Harbour entrance.

Thirteen revised depths over wrecks in Belgium waters.  Surprisingly 12 of the depths are less than previously recorded despite 10 of then being previously swept.  Five of the wrecks are located in the West Hinder TSS, their approaches or adjacent.  All are in deep water and will not hinder a leisure craft.


Four wrecks are around the approaches to Oostende.  One at 1.4m on the edge of the Stroombank is worth noting in particular.


The final four wrecks are on the approaches to Zeebrugge and are previously marked (obviously) and are unlikely to hinder leisure craft.  Three images.

This Notices is probably the most involved (but not particularly complicated) Notice in over the ten years that I have illustrated.  The Notice is derived from two Belgium notices and has a variety of different corrections.


The notice affects 5 UKHO SNC and 4 UKHO SCC, one full Imray chart and 3 Imray Leisure Charts.


The Notice provides a UKHO block each for 2 of the 5 SNC and has 18 additional corrections.   The corrections comprise:


8 wrecks which are now designated ‘Historic Wk’

4 locations with wrecks that are now designated ‘Historic Wks’

1 existing light now had Racon: this is the light MOW4 which is north of the Wielingen Channel twixt Oostende and Vlissingen

5 existing wrecks with revised depths and designation of ‘Historic Wk’ .


Apart from the Racon on light MOW4, the changes are unlikely to hinder, or be hindered by, or much relevant to leisure craft.
