This refers to (and deletes) the Temporary Notice 450(T) of Week 4 this year but I would suggest that the image of that NtM is still relevant.

Continued warnings of shoaling in the centre of the harbour entrance of Blankenberg.  Currently I cannot find any further local information other than Belgium Notices reporting that Buoys BL1, BL2, BL3, BL5 have been removed.  That buoyage was temporarily placed at the entrance during the season last year.
