Notices to Mariners

From time to time, local Notices to Mariners relating, in general, to matters which may affect navigation and safety within the Gloucester Harbour, are promulgated by the Gloucester Harbour Trustees. Local Notices to Mariners are presently distributed to over sixty organisations and individuals, including shipping agents, the Coastguard, yacht clubs and others. You may also use the facility on our home page to sign up to be notified of new Notices.

The texts of all current Notices may be viewed or downloaded using the following links. Copies may also be obtained from the Trustees' office at Sharpness, to which notification of navigational problems may also be made.
