Looking at Visit My Harbour, the chart doesn't include all the navigation marks in the harbour but it does say that the marks should be followed "religiously".

I always have a moment of doubt when approaching a cardinal - do I keep the mark to the east or do I go to the east of the mark?

In a channel you go to starboard of the port markers (on the way in) but with cardinals you go east of the east markers.

Actually it doesn't.
From memory the issue was more to do with which hazard the cardinal marker was actually for. From memory it appeared to cover the less significant hazard tempting you towards the more significant one.
The chart shows a South cardinal that's not a lot of help when it relates to rocks you have to pass North of. It's function is plainly for navigation into the old harbour but is not a lot of help if you're heading for the marina.

If the going in was from east to west, imho wrong in and right out. But a tricky place anyway....If in doubt i try to do the passage as close as possible to the mark/buoy typically there is some safe water between.

Judging by the position of the sun, Brian was travelling inward from SE so should have passed on the right-hand side of the cardinal mark inward (the cardinal to port side) but was correct when exiting.

But I've learned something too - thank you willk - a south cardinal has 7 flashes, I'd be looking for 6!

Very lucky it was full tide or you would have lost your prop/ leg as you passed to the left of the cardinal. It is very shallow at low tide. I agree that the markings are very confusing at this marina. Red and green markings would be much more helpful.

Funny when you look at Ardglass on Navionics mobile charts there's no east mark only a south mark with scattered special marks and buoyed channel to marina. So that would further confuse things if you were unfamiliar with harbour.
