Proceeding Up River
Continue upstream along the channel clearly defined by red/white striped fairways buoys defining safe water. As Cardigan Estuary is the subject of continual change, sometimes on a weekly basis, mariners should contact the Navigational Officer, Mr Paul Oakley, to ascertain the buoys are correctly positioned.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure the buoys are positioned correctly it is still possible for the buoys to be out of position. Local knowledge is essential. Visiting mariners are at all times responsible for the safety of their craft. Afon Teifi Fairways Limited accepts no liability for any craft floundering in any area of the river for which it holds a lease.
On reaching reaching St. Dogmaels the deep channel is defined between the moorings and the pontoon. The mooring master for this area is Mr. Oakley on 07799284206 or asst mooring master David Pegg on 07974698651.
Once past the pontoon at St. Dogmaels you come level with the Ferry Inn jetty. Here there is a shelf where the water depth reduces dramatically. Care should be taken on crossing this bar. Once past the Ferry around the corner, keeping to the starboard side, you enter the mooring area of Netpool where the deep channel runs again between the moorings right up to the old bridge and Cardigan Town itself. The mooring master for this area is Mr. Leonard James on 07814035438. This area constitutes the only deep water mooring for the whole of the river.
Ynys moorings are situated just upstream of Cardigan's old bridge. They are only suitable for craft of shallow draft and low headroom as the maximum clearance under the bridge does not exceed 3 metres.
