While it is an accepted and agreed instance that yachts and small craft need not advise Port Control of each
and every movement in the harbour, it is courtesy to contact Port Control and advise them of your whereabouts
and intentions when moving around in the harbour

Remember one important fact! - this is a commercial harbour and there is constant traffic in the sea lanes.
Do Not attempt to block traffic in these lanes as action will be taken against you
