A Snapshot of the Portsmouth Queens Harbour Master Department

7pm. Friday 19th February 2021

Portsmouth QHM manages not just Portsmouth Harbour but a large sea area in the eastern Solent approximately by bounded Hill Head and Castle Point to the west, and Southsea and Sandown Bay to the east. With the movements of naval vessels, Isle of Wight ferries, cross-Channel ferries, cargo vessels, fishing boats, and the Gosport ferry the harbour can be very busy even before we count pleasure craft visiting numerous different marinas plus other moorings.

Over the last few years there have been changes to the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour for small boats as well as numerous new "marks".

The presentation will talk about the work of Portsmouth QHM from a small boat perspective and include:

  • Some of the legislation we work too
  • The amount of traffic in the Dockyard Port of Portsmouth and who manages it
  • The Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carrier
  • Leisure issues
  • LNTMS/ NAV Warnings
  • Staying Safe and Incident Reporting
  • Small Boat Channel
