PLYMOUTH LOCAL NOTICE TO MARINERS 043/24

PLYMOUTH SOUND - DIRECTION

PLYMOUTH ARMED FORCES DAY 29 JUNE 2024

 

  1. This notice is a direction by the King’s Harbour Master Plymouth pursuant to the Dockyard Port of Plymouth Order 2020.

  2. The 2024 Armed Forces day Air display will take place over Plymouth Sound on the 29 Jun starting at 1600.

  3. During the displays, an exclusion zone will be established between the hours of 1545 and 1700, or as determined by the aircraft displays, promulgated by Longroom Port Control (LPC). No vessel shall remain within the air display area in Plymouth Sound either underway or at anchor during the times listed above. The zone is indicated on the chartlet at Annex A. Should weather conditions dictate, it may be necessary to tailor or extend the exclusion zone to safeguard craft and spectators. This will be propagated by LPC on VHF 14.

  4. Official marshal craft will patrol the area boundaries and invite spectators or other craft to remain clear of the exclusion zone. Marshal craft will display a blue flag to aid identification. Policing craft will direct vessels that ignore the marshals’ invitation to remain clear of the exclusion zone. Mariners are reminded that failure to comply with official direction by the Officers of the King’s Harbour Master, which includes MOD Police Officers, Devon and Cornwall Police, UK Border Force, Cattewater Harbour Master, and Sutton Harbour Lock keepers, may result in prosecution.

  5. Masters and skippers of craft are reminded to be particularly vigilant during the actual displays when there is a high risk of being distracted from the demands of navigational safety.

  6. Access to or from the Cattewater for large commercial vessels will not be permitted immediately preceding, during, and after the displays.

  7. Cancel this Notice on 30 Jun 24.
