By: andrew.susan.andromeda

The Lagos Navigators VHF Net is set to resume it’s twice weekly broadcasts on Monday, the 2nd of October at 9:30am, on Channel 09.

Its purpose is to provide an update on activities and events around the Marina, share information about items for sale or wanted, put folks in touch who need assistance with those that may be able to help, or are looking for hard to find items for their boats, provide a forum to ask questions, and to encourage dialogue between the community over the winter season.

All are most welcome to contribute to, participate in, and indeed run a Net – we would love to hear from you all. If you have some ideas for activities, the cruisers would like to hear from you. Please ask one of the Net controllers for any additional information you may need.

Channel 09, 9:30am, Mondays and Fridays from the 2nd of October, through to May 2018.

RYA First Aid Course

Date: 17th June at 3:07 pm
By: julia.annecy


We are running this one day course on Friday 23rd June and have places available. This course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on longer passages.

In a medical emergency, a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives, especially in remote locations. This one-day course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for people using small craft and to support skippers.

The course is recommended by the MCA and HSE.

The subjects specific to boating include:

  • the recovery position in a confined space
  • CPR, including the drowning protocol
  • cold shock and hypothermia from immersion and/or exposure
  • seasickness and dehydration
  • medical assistance or advice by VHF
  • helicopter rescue

Let me know if this is of interest and you would like more information. As always discount is available for navigators! Email jules at


Bar at Lagos channel entrance

Date: 13th June at 6:06 pm
By: andrew.susan.andromeda

Following many strong winds and swell from the SE over the winter and spring, depths at the entrance to the channel leading to the Lagos Marina, the Fishing harbour and the Sopromar boat yard may vary from those on current charts.

Currently 1.5 metres may be found at Low Water (non-spring) in calm conditions some 50-100 metres to the south of the moles.

It is suggested that yachts with draughts above 1.5 metres leave/arrive at least on a quarter/half tide and avoid a low water departure/entrance for the time being.

Please take care extra if a swell from the south is running.

Lagos Navigators.
