The Port Authority has been advised by British Waterways Marinas Ltd that the lock between the Sea Dock and the Freshwater Basin/Marina at Glasson has been closed until further notice due to water supply issues. Any vessel that had planned to visit the Marina must not enter Glasson Dock until the lock reopens, as there is no berthing available in the Sea Dock.
Mariners are advised that the River Lune No 3 Buoy has been returned to station at the following coordinates – 53 58′.752 N: 002 57′.761 W.
This cancels NtoM 009-2018.
Mariners are advised that the River Lune No 5 Buoy has been re-positioned at the following co-ordinates: 53 58′.512 N; 002 55′.151 W, due to a slight change in the position of the channel. The Buoy List has been updated accordingly.

NEW DOCK GATE (SEA GATE) OPENING TIMES ARE BEING INTRODUCED AT GLASSON.
The Dock Gate will only be operated on one tide per day, as a matter of course, throughout the year. This will be the tide with High Water nearest to noon using local time, which will effectively extend existing Winter Opening Hours throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn.
The Dock Gate will only be operated on other tides by arrangement, providing 48 hours’ notice is given to the Port Office or Harbour Master.
These opening times and the notice period will remain in force until further notice.
Please note that should any vessels/yachts arrive without prior notice, and moor on the East or North Wall berths, the Lancaster Port Commission will not accept any responsibility for any loss or damage that could occur to the vessels/yachts.
Mariners are advised that due to poor light conditions over recent weeks, the lights on the River Lune No’s 4 and 9 buoys are currently unreliable.
