Weather and Safety

Knowing the weather conditions and how to prepare your vessel is essential for safe and enjoyable boating.

Vessel owners should familiarise themselves with our Emergency Procedure Storm, and other marine safety sites and consult the weather forecasts before heading out on the water.

Please be aware when entering Rosslyn Bay Harbour, we are advised for navigation purposes, the depth at the entrance is approximately 1m plus the tide height. We recommend planning your arrival and departure accordingly.
