Speed restrictions, notices, etc etc

Wouldn't get too caught up in the vagueness of whether its a rule, a law or a recommendation........give it 2 weeks and Tony, Gordon & co in the big hoose next to the Thames or now that the foxes are safe, Jack & co in Embra will pass another bit of useless bureaucratic legislation to replace common sense, courtesy (and probably any existing legislation) !! and no doubt they'll give the MCA fixed penalty tickets to get at least £60 off every "offender" .................

.......................
..................................Oops, possibly sounded a bit cynical there, sorry

I think we all agree the majority of water users are courteous & sensible & would not wish to cause distress, damage or upset to other water users.......including the Yellow Wellies!

PS Bigmuzz......... just in case you slowly pass any southern visitors with cloth engines, have some Jimmy Shand CD's which should have a good effect a one kilowatt output if you're interested LOL

Ok,okay, okaaaay!!!!!!

Was only kidding 'bout Jimmy Shand! Better with this, turn yer speakers up, sit back relax & blast it oot.
If ye don't like it, have it playing on yer boat when you're away from it as an anti-theft device!!

PM me to place orders LOvL!! If you play the 2nd tune at anchor in Tobermory Bay ye might get free sausages at the butchers..he wrote it I think!!

I don't think he'll mind if I mention that that's the big man himself (TORNADO) that is

and if you think thats impressive, you want to see him battering out numbers on a mobile at the same time!

NOTICE TO MARINERS
03/07
SAFE SPEED
Mariners are advised that it is an offence to proceed at excessive speed where
damage, or risk of damage maybe caused by wash or displacement.
Caution should be exercised when passing harbours, piers, moorings, beaches,
recreational activities and any other areas involving property or persons.
Particular vigilance should be exercised when passing vessels alongside
piers, harbour walls or moorings.
Owners and operators of high speed RIB’s and PWC should be
particularly vigilant regarding their speed and the wash that can be
created. Such craft should be operated in a courteous manner with
consideration being given to other sailors.
This notice applies to all vessels navigating within the jurisdiction of Clydeport
Operations Ltd.
Captain R R Bailey
Harbour Master
1st January 2007
Thanks for that. It seems there are 3 publications relevant to clyde area (taken from http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mcga-ml...33A9F1B4D46226)

* Firth of Clyde Marine Leisure Guide
* Clyde Navigation Byelaws
* Clydeport Notices to mariners

Tried to find an online version of Leisre guide but haven't found it yet (if anyone knows if it exists, pls let me know). This is also referenced in notice to mariners - regulation of pleasure craft at http://www.clydeport.co.uk/index.php...=1&page_id=144 which is also copied below.

---------
REGULATION OF YACHTS, POWER BOATS, RIB’s AND PWC’s
Persons in charge of vessels less than 20 metres L.O.A. are reminded that
whilst navigating within the waters under the jurisdiction of Clydeport
Operations Ltd., they shall not impede the passage of any vessel approaching
or leaving any piers, jetties or quays.
Further, no vessel or boat of any description shall be anchored, or moored to
either permanent or temporary moorings in such a position as to impede the
passage of any vessel approaching or leaving any pier, jetty or quay within the
area of jurisdiction of COL.
All users must observe the International Regulations for Preventing Collision at
Sea and have due regard to their position, speed, and effect of their wash on
other users, particularly in areas of high recreational activity.
Pleasure Craft users are advised to obtain a copy of ‘The Firth of Clyde Marine
Leisure Guide’ and familiarise themselves with the content. This useful guide
was published by Clydeport during the Spring of 2006 and can be obtained
from the publishers

----------

As mentioned by various folks, common sense prevails! I had reduced speed considerably (and was well away from the moorings) when I got shouted at. I maintain that a yacht going at more than hull speed probably generates more wake than a RIB at full throttle. I guess the difference is a RIB generates a lot of spray so is more visible!
