Cowes Breakwater construction exclusion area RYA http://www.rya.org.uk
An exclusion zone will be put in place at the mouth of Cowes Harbour while construction of the new Cowes Breakwater, due to start in February 2014, takes place.

A clear route will be defined for traffic to and from the site, and the small craft event moorings will be newly re-configured.

Five clusters of inflatable yellow buoys have been laid to mark the position of the breakwater which is now readily identifiable to passing vessels.

Final ground investigation works are now complete and a design and build contract will be awarded in December 2013. The work is due to take around eight months. Click here to see the diagram and for more information.

The RYA Southern Region will provide further progress reports. RYA Cruising
