from the Navigation Officer
Prince Charles Quay is temporarily closed awaiting work to be carried out to bring the Quay back to being fit for purpose.
Also I advise all skippers using the river to proceed with extreme caution whilst navigating the Prince Charles Quay Pool. There is excessive debris and underwater obstructions in the pool itself by way of a shoal of slate that stretches from the Quay across two thirds of the river itself , and is clearly visible at low water. All skippers enter this area at their own risk.
Also there are underwater obstacles alongside the Quay itself making it dangerous to moor-up on the Quay
Extreme caution should also be employed whilst using the whole of the river as there are many half submerged trees and debris still there after the flood. The Glan Teifi area is a nightmare relating to relating to depth.
The Quay will remain closed until further notice pending work being carried out to rectify the situation . By order of the Fairways .

The channel marker buoys are out of place following the recent storm and heavy rain. They are not to be relied on in their current positions. The buoys will be removed by the end of this week and we will notify here when they are back where they should be.

A Warning from the Navigation Officer
The Glan Teifi bends are unnavigable, except at very high water, due to sand build up.
7 March 2017
By the end of this month the Navigation Officer will have placed new posts to mark the navigable channel .
Fishermen have placed a Dan-buoy and Port and Starboard markers on the Bar to mark the channel. These are not official marks and it is the responsibility of the individual skipper if they choose to follow them.
Channel Markers have been reinstated after maintenance. There are ten buoys between Pwll Sama and Glan Teifi.
