SW Sunk 2020 New Survey V5.jpg




The South-West Sunk swatchway


Download

Revised 25th June, 2020

NEW

PDF  Download


The SW Sunk was re-surveyed on 23rd June, 2020.  The swatchway has lost a little depth but there is still ample depth at 3.4m minimum on the recommended track and waypoints.  I am retaining the same waypoints recommended in 2019.



The preparation of the chartlet was kindly provided tide data from the Port of London Authority which assisted in reduction to Chart Datum.


Note: As before to the north-east, the Middle Sunk knoll is a quite gentle slope up.  However, the knoll to the south-west has a very steep edge and should be avoided.  Holding the rhumbline between the West and Mid waypoints is important.  On the flood it was clear the tide followed the 'bed' of the swatchway from the East to the West and at the west end the flood tide meets the flood down from the Barrow Deep.  That provokes an interesting tide rip in the face of the knoll.  I noted where the two 'tides' met whilst not difficult, I needed more concentration to steer straight.  I stress it was not difficult.

This is a CTTE chartlet based upon resurvey on 18th June, 2019.  This suggest there has been no significant changes but excellent weather permitted a larger number of soundings and towards the west is better.  Suggested waypoints for the best water have been added.


On the download the second page provides some useful notes on tidal heights at the Spitway.

The Little Sunk

Adjacent to the Barrow No 2 PHB


New

Redrawn August, 2020 using new software

PDF  Download





This is a CTTE chartlet based upon a survey completed on 24th August, 2019.  This is usually a stable  crossing place and  it remains so.  The survey was more comprehensive  than previously and consequently there is a significantly greater amount of detail.


The image can be downloaded by itself or, by using, the PDF download you will received some general notes about observations and for those with copies of the book some observations about the waypoints and routes..


The crossing area is bounded by two wrecks to the south-west and the wreckage of the old 'Little Sunk' Beacon to the north-east.  All hazards are physically unmarked but there is ample room assuming a valid GPS signal over sand.

Buoyage as August, 2019

(Tollesbury No 4 now placed back)

PDF  Download



This is a CTTE chartlet based upon a survey completed during October, 2016.


Changes to depth across the Quarters has required a change to the buoyage which was re-laid in April, 2017.


Deep draught yachts (i.e. @2m draught) is recommended to follow the suggested route at LWS. Note this has been amended this month (May) to show the 'Obstn' SW of the Nass Beacon is not now annotated as ED.  It DOES exist and should be regarded as dangerous to leisure craft.

New chart 2020


PDF  Download



Re-surveyed on 21st July, 2020 and redrawn.

The chartlet is drawn to Chart Datum.

I have  just added a table of Tidal Height predictions at Bradwell Creek which I hope will assist new visitors.

When printed the chartlet is best in A3  size.  It is difficult to include all the detail in A4.  None is omitted so it will be quite small.  Of course as a PDF or JPG it can be enlarged as you wish.
